Aubameyang dropped from Arsenal captaincy

Arsenal has dropped Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of the club captaincy after a disciplinary breach last week. For Saturday’s match against Southampton, Gunners captain Aubameyang was left out of the squad and Arsenal confirmed their decision to remove the forward from his position on Tuesday.

The club has also mentioned that Aubameyang will not be available for a football match against West Ham on Wednesday, according to Sky Sports. “Following his latest disciplinary breach last week, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will no longer be our club captain, and will not be considered for selection for Wednesday’s match against West Ham United,” Arsenal said in a statement. 

“We expect all our players, particularly our captain, to work to the rules and standards we have all set and agreed. We are fully focused on tomorrow’s match,” the club said in a statement.

Mikel Arteta is due to give a press conference, while the Arsenal manager previously said: “I think we have been very consistent that we have certain non-negotiables in the team that we have set ourselves as a club.” Arteta was tight-lipped on the reasons for Aubameyang’s absence, refusing to comment when asked if the striker had returned late from a trip abroad.

Aubameyang was also left out by manager Mikel Arteta for a victory over north London rivals Tottenham in March over a disciplinary issue when he arrived late for a pre-match meeting. “It’s not an easy situation or a situation we want, to have our club captain in that situation,” Arteta said on Saturday.
