Arsenal legend expects Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to lose captaincy over latest disciplinary breach

Aubameyang misses out on Arsenal’s Southampton win

Despite Arsenal’s 3-0 win, the major talking point of the day was their decision to exclude Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from the matchday squad.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta revealed that it was due to a disciplinary breach, but refused to comment further.

It then emerged that it was due to a late return from a trip abroad, that due to COVID-19 protocols, meant that he couldn’t make the matchday squad.

But what will the further implications be?

Martin Keown “expects” captaincy change in the near future

Speaking on BBC’s Match of the Day, Arsenal legend Martin Keown was quick to criticise Arsenal’s current club captain for his latest transgression. The former defender, who amassed 403 appearances for the Gunners between 1993 and 2004, was asked about the issue of Aubameyang, and claimed that he could well lose the club captaincy over it.

Keown suggested:

The captaincy is in question now.

“You can’t keep being late or disappearing on trips abroad and not coming back on time

“Your teams needs you and he’s not there when they need him the most. I’d expect that [the captaincy] to change now.’

Aubameyang was of course only made club captain after Granit Xhaka was stripped of the title in November 2019 after his antics in front of the Emirates crowd in their 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace.

Should Aubameyang be stripped of the captain’s armband, will the Gunners finally be able to find a captain worthy of the role?
