Arteta Asks for “Respect and Commitment” after Dropping Aubameyang

When Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang lost his captaincy (football news), Mikel Arteta insists he does not run Arsenal like a dictator. Instead, simply, from his players, Gunners head coach Arteta asks for “respect and commitment” after dropping from Aubameyang the squad.

Arsenal stripped Aubameyang of his captain’s armband this month. And he has not featured in the team’s last four matches because of a disciplinary issue.

Arteta Asks for “Respect and Commitment” after Dropping Aubameyang

Gunners manager Mikel Arteta says he expects the same level of commitment from all of his players.

“I do not establish my authority by being dictatorial or ruthless,” Arteta told reporters.

“I just ask for one thing: respect and commitment. At this level, if I don’t get that, I will pack my bags and go somewhere else because that is the minimum I can ask for.

“I am going to expect that from everybody who works for the club. First of all, from myself, and the day I don’t do that I will walk through that door and go and do something else. It as clear as that.

“To be successful you have to be passionate about something and want to represent a club of this size, with its history. That is the minimum standard you have to bring. I am not going to ask anybody to put the ball in the top corner every time they hit it, but I will ask them to do the right things every single day for this club.”

Arteta also insists that he is not being too harsh on Aubameyang, the striker and former captain.
