The Arsenal squad is not in full support of manager Unai Emery’s decision, to strip Granit Xhaka of the Arsenal captaincy and hand it to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Xhaka was removed as skipper, after clashing with fans in last month’s 2-2 draw at home to Crystal Palace.

Although the players were given the opportunity to vote on their captain after Laurent Koscielny left for Bordeaux, they were not consulted at all when Aubameyang was named captain.
