BREAKING: EPL: Aubameyang banished from Arsenal first-team training
Arsenal striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, has been banished from first-team training.
Sportsmail reports that the player will continue to be exiled from Mikel Arteta’s plans until the end of 2021 at the earliest.
Aubameyang’s future with the Gunners is looking increasingly bleak, after he was stripped of the club captaincy on Monday.
Arsenal in an official statement, cited his “latest disciplinary breach”.
The 32-year-old has not been involved in first-team training at the club’s London Colney HQ this week.
Instead, Aubameyang has been training alone, away from the squad.
Arteta confirmed on Friday that the Gabon striker would not be considered for the weekend game at Leeds. And it is understood his non-inclusion will continue until he departs for the Africa Cup of Nations duty at the end of the month.
A date for Aubameyang’s release for the tournament is still to be agreed.
But the forward is understandably keen to leave for international duty as soon as possible.
