Something blue: Arsenal's Xhaka ties the knot with long-term love in sky blue suit

Gunners' man marries partner Leonita Lekaj wearing bright blue tux

Swiss footballer Granit Xhaka has reportedly tied the knot with long term love Leonita Lekaj, and his choice of attire has everyone talking.

The Arsenal midfielder took to social media to share some of the stunning photos of his big day in which he is seen sockless and in a striking sky blue tuxedo.

Bride Leonita beamed in a strapless ball gown which featured a dramatic lace train and plunging neckline.


Soccer star Xhaka reportedly proposed to his long term love last year, but appeared to have popped the question for a second time last month.

"She said YES," the 24-year-old captioned a photo of him down on one knee and presenting a visibly surprised Lekaj with a ring.

"A golden Ball is a miracle, a golden wife is a paradise!" he added.

The former Borussia Monchengladbach player has been with Arsenal since the start of this season. They celebrated their thirteenth FA Cup win this year, beating league champions and favourites Chelsea.
