‘Right Decision’ ‘I Think That Is A Great Move By Emery’ ‘Great News’ Arsenal Fans On Twitter React To Latest Club Announcement

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has announced that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has replaced Granit Xhaka as the club’s captain. The Gabon international took the armband for the 1-1 draw against Wolves at the weekend, and he will take on the role on a permanent basis.

Hector Bellerin, Alexandre Lacazette and Mesut Ozil are the three other players in the ‘captaincy group’ but Aubameyang has been officially nominated by Emery as the leader. Most fans on Twitter believe the decision was the correct one:

Aubameyang can certainly lead by example on the pitch, with the 30-year-old having scored nine goals in 13 appearances. However, it remains to be seen how stripping a popular figure in the squad like Xhaka will affect team morale.

The Swiss international’s future is now in doubt following the loss of the captaincy, and when asked about the 27-year-old’s future in his pre-match press conference yesterday, Emery would only say that they are in ongoing discussions with the player.
