Unai Emery Hints That Aubameyang Could Be Arsenal's Captain by reportminds: 9:03am On Nov 03, 2019
Arsenal boss Unai Emery has hinted that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could be made captain on a permanent basis, if he decides to strip Granit Xhaka of the armband.


Aubameyang stepped in to lead in his absence, and opened the scoring midway through the first half with his 50th goal for the club, before Raul Jimenez's header earned Wolves a point.

The Gabon forward is already part of Emery's five-man leadership group - alongside Xhaka, Mesut Ozil, Alexandre Lacazette and Hector Bellerin – and when asked whether he may be the man to take the job full-time, Emery said: “[He] could do.

“I think he can take that responsibility and today he did that,” Emery added. “He is one of the captains and I think he can take that responsibility, but we are going to analyse the match first and the situation for the next matches and decide.”

The pressure on Emery is mounting as his side dropped points at home once again, making it just one win in their last five games in all competitions.

It was defensive frailty that cost Arsenal once more, as they were caught out by a quick thrown in for Jimenez's leveller, but Emery insisted that it was failure to convert chances at the other end that had been to blame, while also defending his tactical set-up.

“Really, we worked very well today in a different tactical situation,” Emery said. “We didn't concede a big transition with big chances, we went 1-0 up, created chances to score the second but we needed more efficiency in that action.

“We can improve and we must improve that balance defensively but above all, today the key was to have more clear chances to score the second goal and take the result.

“The result is a bad result but tactically, I think we worked like we wanted.”

emery is becoming clueless... star boy pierre is a fantastic player but not a leader...
this was the same thing wenger did, giving his best player the captaincy van persie when he clearly had no leadership quality. that didnt stop him from abandoning ship

He was bad at PSG. Won what he won there because of (1) Neymar, Cavani and Mbappe and (2) No stiff competition in French League.
In Sevilla he was average.

He is like Benitez. Can do well in average teams, getting the odd win here and there and keeping a mediocre fan base happy.
