Mikel Arteta Leaves Aubameyang out Again
Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta confirmed that the Gabon international would be sitting out Saturday’s trip to Leeds United, who suffered a 7-0 loss to defending champions Manchester City. The manager was asked if he would play Aubameyang in his next game, and he said: “No, he’s not available for selection,” said Arteta, who batted away questions on Aubameyang’s future.”
Asked how he had coped with the fallout of taking the armband from Aubameyang, Arteta said: “Every time that you are sitting here, you have some challenges.” “You have some brilliant moments and some moments when you have to make decisions.” “I am sitting here to try to make the right decisions every day. My only intention is that to get the club in the best possible condition, to defend our players and get the best possible results on the pitch that we can.”
“It’s been challenging because those decisions are tough and not pleasant, but you have to do what you feel is right.”
