'Arsenal Players Agree With Arteta's Decision To Axe Aubameyang'

Arsenal players agree with manager Mikel Arteta's decision to axe Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from the first team squad, according to a Premier League legend.

Aubameyang has not featured for the Gunners since the club's 2-1 loss to Everton on 6 December after he was banned by Arteta for a disciplinary breach.

The north London outfit has won six straight games since Aubameyang's axing, and Premier League all-time leading goalscorer Alan Shearer feels the squad's displays since show that they agree with the decision.

"It was a big, brave decision from Arteta to do what he did because with the personality, who Aubameyang was with the captaincy on him, the salary that he is on," Shearer said on BBC's Match of the Day, as per the Metro.

"But he has to show discipline because he has got a young team who he is trying to send a message to. They now know that they can't mess around, they can't be late for training or whatever the situation is.

"And the players agree with the decision that Arteta made because you can tell by their performances.

"Arteta needed his players to back him up in terms of giving him the goals and the performances, and they've done that in style."
