Arsenal star Granit Xhaka and wife Leonita love Camden Town met while working at Borussia Monchengladbach

GRANIT XHAKA has been hugely impressive in Arsenal’s brilliant 10-game winning run.

And the midfielder has been backed by a familiar sight in the stands: his wife Leonita.

The stunning 26-year-old has been with Granit since meeting during his time at Borussia Monchengladbach.

Leonita, like Granit, comes from a Kosovo-Albanian family and worked at the German club – although it’s not known in what capacity she was working.

The couple were engaged in June 2016 after two years together and tied the knot at a ceremony in July 2017.

It’s not clear where the lavish day took place but Xhaka certainly caught the eye in an electric blue suit.

Leonita wore a stunning white dress with a long train that extended more than 6ft.

Not a huge amount is known about Leonita.

There are conflicting reports about where she grew up, although she is said to have been born in Albania.

Leonita is said to have spent her early life in Pristina, the capital of Kosovo, before her family moved somewhere in the Ruhr, Germany.

The brunette moved to London with Granit, who grew up in Switzerland, when he joined Arsenal for £30million in 2016.

The Xhakas have a home in Barnet, north London, but Arsenal fans might just catch them in Camden Town – their favourite part of London.

Xhaka told the Guardian last year: “I feel a connection to Camden that takes me back to my childhood.

“When Taulant (brother) and I were kids, we had our first trip on a bus from Basel to Pristina so that we could visit our grandparents for the first time.

The bus stopped in various places and I saw all of these markets, which Camden now reminds me of.

“I am a very simple man, I love normality and I love normal people.

“I love to eat normal food. It’s how I grew up.

“In Camden, it’s just the atmosphere that gets me.

“It’s simple, it’s nice, it’s real.

“And it’s the people, too.”

Xhaka’s father Ragip moved his family to Basel in 1990 having been a political prisoner in the former Yugoslavia.

At 22, Ragip had participated in a student demonstration against the Communist government ruling the country – he eventually served three years in prison.
