Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang found itself in hot water, although the exact nature of the disturbance has not been identified.
What did Arteta say about Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang?
The Gunners captain dropped out due to a disciplinary breakthrough, Arteta revealed. The forward failed to report to London Colney for a final training session ahead of Saturday’s Premier League match against Southampton. Initially, it was thought that the Gabonese International might be in a bad way, but Mikel Arteta has since stated that Pierre-Emerick was shot down due to a fall in club rules.
Speaking before the clash of the saints, Mikel Arteta said that unfortunately Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was thrown off due to a disciplinary offense. Mikel thinks that they were very consistent, that they have certain non-negotiable things in the team that they set themselves as a club, and he is not involved today. According to Mikel Arteta, this is a difficult situation and not a situation in which they want to have their own club captain.
The Gabonese International was punished for returning late to club duties after a trip on board that was cleared by the gunners’ leadership. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang returned from his vacation, which was cleared by Arsenal for personal reasons, later agreed upon, which affected Londoners’ coronavirus protocols.
A little about the topic
Pierre-Emerick has been a source of discontent for some time, and the skipper has been terribly out of shape for some time. Despite being the club’s captain, his poor performances effectively forced Mikel’s hand, and Pierre-Emerick was forced to settle in place on Monday’s defeat to Everton. Indeed, the striker has been unable to find the net since October, in a 3-1 win over Crystal Palace.
With the Gunners’ strikers vying for goals on a consistent basis, many believe the club should be in the market for a new striker. Jonathan David from Lille, Calvert-Lewin from Everton and Fiorentina’s sly Vlahovic have all been linked to the move to the Emirates, but it is unlikely that any deals will be struck in the January window.
