Video: Arteta backtracks on previous ‘niggle’ comments on Aubameyang

Mikel Arteta stated that he subbed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang off with a ‘niggle’ earlier into his press conference, but now claims that hi forward was struggling with a ‘stomach issue’.

The Gabon international returned to form with a fine brace against Newcastle last night, but had to come off later in the game with the result in the bag.

Earlier in the press conference he stated that he came off because of a ‘niggle’, but when pressed for more information on his injury, the manager claimed that he was actually removed for a ‘stomach issue’, which he appeared to find hilarious.

    The same thing happened in an NFL primetime game between the Ravens and the Browns about a month ago…the commentators suggested that Lamar Jackson, the Ravens ultra-talented QB, had severe leg cramps, even though we could see him on camera running to the locker room…anyone who has played sports knows that if you’re actually suffering from severe leg cramping you’re not running anywhere fast and especially not with cleats while on a very slick surface…he actually made a hero’s return late in the 4th quarter and led them to victory…sadly, even though everyone and their brother knew the “real” story, the team and the player adamantly denied anything of the sort…what a shitty situation, with the greatest possible ending!!!
