According to David Ornstein of the Athletic (subscription required), Arsenal are ‘irritated’ with superstar forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang because of his relationship with AFTV.
The extremely popular YouTube channel formerly known as Arsenal Fan TV boasts a massive following of 1.09m subscribers.
The report claims that the club believe the channel’s rapid growth in recent years has led to a ‘upsurge’ in negativity towards the team.
Aubameyang was recently named as Arsenal’s captain after Granit Xhaka’s shocking outburst towards fans during last month’s Premier League draw with Crystal Palace.
Ornstein’s report also hints that Aubameyang was “smart” to strike up a relationship with the controversial channel, suggesting that the 30-year-old has become immune to criticism in doing so.
The former Borussia Dortmund also reportedly liked AFTV Instagram posts, one which criticised Unai Emery and another that called for Xhaka to be sold in January.
Aubameyang’s activity on social media reportedly left staff and teammates ‘unimpressed’.
Finally, Ornstein claims that the former Borussia Dortmund ace has been urged to cut ties with AFTV star Troopz.
It is reported that the outspoken contributor has been invited to watch Arsenal games in Aubameyang’s executive box.
