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.

Man City star Bernado Silva girlfriend’s Alicia Verrando is a model who also works for Manchester PR firm Roland Dransfield

BERNARDO SILVA struck gold at Monaco.
Not only did the Portuguese star help the club win their first Ligue 1 title in 17 years – he met his future girlfriend.
Instagram@aliciaverrando Man City star Bernardo Silva’s beautiful girlfriend Alicia Verrando[/caption]
Instagram@aliciaverrando The pair met at AS Monaco, where Alicia was working in the marketing department[/caption]
Alicia Verrando, 24, was working in the marketing department for Les Monegasques while studying towards a degree in business.
The half-French, half-Portuguese beauty would later get a full-time job with the club as a project manager.
Alicia grew up local to the club in Monte Carlo, Monaco.
She studied at the SKEMA Business School in Sophia Antipolis an hour down the road, just outside Cannes.
Instagram@aliciaverrando Alicia, 24, is half-French and half-Portuguese[/caption]
Instagram@aliciaverrando Alicia has a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and Management from the SKEMA Business School[/caption]
Instagram@aliciaverrando Alicia is also a model and advertises items on her social media page[/caption]
Instagram@aliciaverrando Alicia joined Manchester-based PR firm Roland Dransfield at the start of October as an account executive[/caption]
Her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and Management also allowed Alicia to spend a semester – around 15 weeks – at California State University.
Alicia left her job at Monaco in 2017, moving with Bernardo after he made his £43.5million move to the Etihad.
The 24-year-old has a modelling contract with J’adore Models and has travelled around the world to wear clothes.
Alicia has also promoted items such as phone cases and cosmetic items to her 20,000 Instagram followers.

But while Silva’s £120,000-a-week contract and modelling may have been enough to keep some wags to stay out of full-time work, Alicia is different.
Earlier this month she joined Manchester-based PR Firm Roland Dransfield.
Working as an account executive, Alicia could expect to work with clients such as Premiership rugby club Sale Sharks or massive financial firms Schroders or Legal & General.
According to her Linkedin page, Alicia even speaks six languages – French, Portuguese, English, Italian, Spanish and Chinese.
