Granit Xhaka has been enjoying his life away from the football pitch since returning from his summer holiday alongside his new wife, Leonita Lekaj.

The newlyweds are very active on Instagram, with Xhaka always happy to share snaps of him and Lekaj.

The midfielder met his wife while playing for Borussia Monchengladbach, as Lekaj actually worked at the Bundesliga club, and they got engaged last April. The Kosovo-Albanian pair then got married earlier this summer.

Xhaka and Lekaj have been enjoying life back in London after their summer break. The couple most recently visited Sexy Fish, a trendy raw food restaurant in the capital West End. Not just a weird hashtag that Xhaka had captioned his picture with.

It’s good to see the 24-year-old enjoying his life in London since moving to Arsenal from Monchengladbach last summer.

The Switzerland intentional has returned to training with the majority of the Arsenal squad and has been heavily involved in the Gunners’ pre-season matches.

Xhaka will be hoping the 2017/18 season will be the one in which he truly cements his place in Arsene Wenger’s starting XI.

While he did make 32 Premier League appearances last term, only 28 of them were starts. Now that the midfielder has learned the ins and outs of English football and shown that he’s capable, the boss may give him the nod more often.

However, Xhaka could have his work cut out keeping the referees on side considering he seems to have earned a completely unfounded reputation for having a poor disciplinary record.
