Video: Arteta opens up on why discipline is crucial after Aubameyang issues

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang found himself dropped to the bench after supposedly turning up late on matchday, and Mikel Arteta is adamant that his players must follow the rules.

The Gunners went onto win 2-1 without our main goal outlet, against one of the ‘big six’ in Tottenham, and while the manager wants to draw a line under his decision, he warns that players must show their commitment if they want the project to succeed.

Is Aubameyang’s lack of discipline disrespectful to his fellow players? Is his captaincy at risk?

  1. I totally agree with Arteta on that point, discipline must be really impeccably adhered to and must be the same for all. Discipline of the pitch directly relates to performance and concentration. The caveat is Arteta in the past treated different players differently for lack of discipline and treated some players unfairly. If he has learned some human values, fairness and equality now, then that can only be beneficial for his long term job outcome and the players togetherness on the pitch.

  2. well said Sean…..

    Auba maybe more arrogant than we thought, refusing to even celebrate with the team after the game? being the first to leave the stadium after full time and holding a record for turning up late for games, a habit report say’s he had in Dortmund that saw him fall off with Tuchel….

    I say we offload him…..if not for his very high wages, cos to me Tami Abraham seems to be a fox in the box/target man just like him…..we could go for him and cut our loss off him now, less we have another ozill on the loose
