Granit Xhaka pays his dues after Gladbach star racks up red cards

Borussia Monchengladbach have confirmed that Granit Xhaka has made a voluntary donation to charity after picking up yet another red card, this time against Darmstadt on Sunday.

Xhaka was sent off in the 38th minute for lashing out at an opponent in an off-the-ball incident -- his fifth red card in just 95 appearances for Monchengladbach, thus putting him well on the way to breaking the all-time Bundesliga record of eight.

As such, the combative midfielder has donated €20,000 to a local charity as penance for his repeated disciplinary sins.

Given his record, things could get very costly for Xhaka this season.
