Aubameyang’s agent appears to aim dig at Arsenal following captaincy decision

Posted by

Arsenal have stripped Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of the captaincy today, and it looks like the player’s agent is not too impressed.

Aubameyang has been a top performer for the Gunners for many years now, and his superb performances as captain helped the club lift the FA Cup and Community Shield last year.

It seems the Gabon international’s agent is now making reference to this on Instagram with a few pictures showing his client’s success…

Aubameyang doesn’t necessarily seem the ideal choice as captain, however, after suffering a major dip in form this season.

The 32-year-old has not only played badly, but has also looked disinterested at times, and it could be that Mikel Arteta will be vindicated by this decision to make a change.

It’s a big call, however, and could backfire quite easily, especially as there’s no obvious contender to replace Aubameyang as skipper in this squad.

Many Arsenal fans on Twitter seem to be rallying behind left-back Kieran Tierney as the ideal choice, but we’re yet to hear from Arteta on who could be wearing the armband next.

Granit Xhaka was also stripped of the captaincy by Arsenal in 2019, while a little further back, Arsene Wenger also took the armband off William Gallas and gave it to Cesc Fabregas in 2008.
