Pierre Emerick Aubameyang reacts to rumours of a rift in Arsenal dressing room.
The environment around the Emirates is threatening to derail Arsenal’s season and tear the dressing room apart.
Reports in the media claim that Pierre Emerick Aubameyang has reacted angrily to reports online that not every member of the team agrees with the decision to name him captain.
The Gabonese attacker was recently named as the club’s captain after Granit Xhaka was stripped of the captaincy.
According to the reports, the dressing room does not agree with how Xhaka was stripped of the captaincy and they feel that he has been made a scapegoat.
Aubameyang was also slated for his relationship with AFTV who seem to be championing the calls for the club to sack Unai Emery.
Aubameyang, upon hearing of the rumours, took to his social media account to vent his anger.
‘I just arrived in Gabon and heard a lot of ‘bullsh*ts,’ said Aubameyang. ‘I talk with who I want whenever I want and if somebody’s not happy with you…you already know.’
I hardly think that is an appropriate response from the Arsenal captain. If Xhaka had sent out a message like that and associating with people abusing Aubameyang, could you imagine the reaction? It would be hysterical.
This latest episode continues to show just how out of control the situation is. It is hard to see Emery putting things right soon. But he retains the club’s backing and has been assured that he won’t be getting the sack. At least for now.
