    Aubameyang could lose his captaincy at Arsenal after the current disciplinary infraction

    Following his latest disciplinary incident, Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang may be deprived of his position. The Gabonese international was left out of the matchday squad for Saturday’s 3-0 win against Southampton, with manager Mikel Arteta confirming before the game that the player had been dropped due to a ‘disciplinary transgression.’

    That comes after the striker was dropped from the starting XI for Monday’s loss to Everton, after being replaced late in the Gunners’ loss to Manchester United just a few days earlier as the Gunners were chasing an equalizer.

    Aubameyang could lose his captaincy at Arsenal after the current disciplinary infraction

    Despite Arteta’s insistence last week that there is no ‘rift’ between the two, several analysts, including club legend Thierry Henry, have indicated there could be something building behind the scenes between the manager and his captain. This feeling has only been fuelled by this new violation.

    According to Goal, Aubameyang’s captaincy is now in jeopardy as a result of the recent incident, which is not the first time the former Borussia Dortmund player has faced disciplinary discipline. The player was dropped for the north London derby in March after arriving late on game day, and this latest omission is said to have occurred after he failed to return to the club on time after being granted permission for a trip away.

    He is likely expected to set an example for the rest of the club as captain and one of the elder characters in a predominantly youthful dressing room, hence the doubt regarding his future with the armband.

    As the story says, his career at the Emirates could be in jeopardy due to both his off-field difficulties and his recent poor form, even though the team has demonstrated they can function in his absence.
