Granit Xhaka wife - Leonita Lekaj

Granit Xhaka has become a major part of Arsenal's squad under the management of Mikel Arteta, as he proved to be a trustworthy defensive midfielder. However, we decided to take a look not in his professional career, but instead in his more personal life.


Is Granit single or does he have a girlfriend? Does he have any children, or not?


Oh My Football will take you closer to Xhaka's personal life, so here it is.


Who is the woman behind the Gunner?


Leonita Lekaj is the beautiful wife of Granit Xhaka. The couple have been together for five years as they started dating when the Switzerland international was playing for the Bundesliga team Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2015.


Leonita became Mrs. Xhaka in 2017 as they got married on July 6 in a big ceremony attended by his teammates and all of his family members.



The couple got engaged a month before they have tied the knot, as Xhaka proposed while they were having a romantic dinner.


He posted a picture where he was on his knee holding the ring and captioned it: "She said YES. A golden Ball is a miracle, a golden wife is a paradise! Mr&Mrs Xhaka."

Who is Leonita Lekaj?


But what exactly do we know about Xhaka's wife? Let's find out what is Leonita Lekaj age, what is her occupation and where she was born.


Leonita got famous after she started dating the Swiss international and since then she became an Instagram model and she has been very successful.


Leonita was born on March 31, 1992, which means that she is already 28-year-old.


The beauty was born in Albania and she was raised in Pristina, Kosovo. However, when she got older her family moved to Ruhr region of Germany.



Lekaj is the biggest supporter of the Arsenal midfielder and she often cheers him when he is playing. She was first seen cheering him at the Euro 2016 where Switzerland played against Albania in the opening game.


She was seen alongside her mother in law, while they were watching the game in the crowd as Granit Xhaka was playing against his brother, Taulant Xhaka, who chose to represent Albania instead of Switzerland.

Both of them are very active on the social media, as they post pictures of their little daughter.
