Who will captain Arsenal next season? According to British website paininthearsenal.com, Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could lose his armband to Scottish youngster Kieran Tierney.
The reason: the former Borussia Dortmund player would not have been sufficiently involved in the important moments of the club. "In interviews on the club's website, the Gabonese striker rarely took the floor last season to explain the club's difficulties or reassure the fans," wrote the site, not without highlighting the qualities of Kieran Tierney.
"Tierney, on the other hand, has never shirked responsibility. He was not afraid to admit that he and the rest of the team were not up to scratch this season. This brought out the player's true personality and made the fans feel good about him," paininthearsenal.com continued.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was less decisive last season, scoring 10 goals and providing three assists in 29 league games. The 32-year-old was promoted as captain of the London club in November 2019.
