Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been stripped of the Arsenal captaincy and will be axed from the squad ahead of the West Ham fixture. OMG.

Auba has been pulled up following a disciplinary breach.

Who’s next? Arsenal have stripped Auba of the captaincy

Who’s next? Arsenal have stripped Auba of the captaincy

Arsenal’s official statement reads: “We expect all our players, particularly our captain, to work to the rules and standards we have all set and agreed”

The news of Aubameyang joining Granit Xhaka and William Gallas on the list of players removed as Arsenal captain, has amused the internet with tons of memes mocking the 32-year-old.

And although it is unclear how the Gabon striker broke the rules for boss Mikel Arteta to ruthlessly take away the armband, questions on the next Gunners captain have been rising.

Will it be Scottish man Kieran Tierney, Alexandre Lacazette or goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale?

talkSPORT EDGE takes a look at what the world of social media predicts! 

MASCOT TO THE RESCUE

It seems like mascot Gunnersaurus may be a favourite choice and capable of becoming Aubameyang’s successor…

RETURN OF GRANIT?

After an angry confrontation with home fans, Granit Xhaka was stripped of the captaincy and was replaced by Aubameyang in 2019. 

And a few fans are liking the idea of the Swiss international to regain his place…

YOUNG GUN

Having been at Arsenal for almost one year, rumours have sparked stating Norwegian midfielder Martin Odegaard could become the next captain.

However despite Odegaard’s rising popularity, a few fans are not happy for the 21-year-old to be their leader.

NO TO TIERNEY

Although talkSPORT’s very own Jim White recommends fellow Scottish pal Kieran Tierney for captainship, a few tweeters disagree.

One fan in particular has called out Tierney’s appearance stats. Harsh.

GOALIE TO CAPTAIN

Newly appointed goalkeeper, Aaron Ramsdale has made quite the impact at Arsenal and whereas his fans are in favour of him becoming captain, others are not soo keen.
