Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will train with Arsenal today after being stripped of his skipper’s armband, while Alexandre Lacazette will lead the team against West Ham on Wednesday.
He will return to training with Arsenal on Wednesday, just a day after losing his captaincy. Alexandre Lacazette is set to lead the team when they play West Ham on Thursday night.
Mikel Arteta took the Gabon striker’s armband off because he didn’t come back from a trip to France last week to get his sick mother back from the hospital on time.
It wasn’t the first time Aubameyang broke the rules, and this latest infraction added to long-standing doubts about his ability to lead the team.
