Granit Xhaka and Leonita Lekaj’s wedding photos are stunning!
Arsenal star Granit Xhaka has taken time in the off-season to wed his long-term girlfriend Leonita Lekaj.
The Gunners midfielder proposed to Lekaj last April and tied the knot just a year later ahead of the upcoming Premier League season. The Switzerland international announced the big news by posting a ‘Mr and Mrs’ photo with his bride on Instagram.
Like Xhaka, Lekaj comes from a Kosovo Albanian family and she met the Swiss footballer while working at his former club in her native Germany, Borussia Monchengladbach.
Lekaj made a splash at Euro 2016 when she sat with the Xhaka family during Granit and brother Taulant’s ‘family feud’ showdown between Switzerland and Albania.
