Every Arsenal player afraid of Mikel Arteta – Elneny
Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny has revealed that he and his teammates are "scared" of manager Mikel Arteta because of what he did to forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Aubameyang was Arsenal’s captain and main player until a year ago, when he was stripped of the armband by Arteta after a number of disciplinary issues.
The Gabonese attacker was ousted from Arsenal’s first team and eventually had his contract cancelled, allowing him to move to Barcelona during the January transfer window.
“Everyone looked at themselves because [if] Mikel did that to the captain of the team, what is he going to do with another player?” Elneny said.
Speaking ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League derby with Arsenal on Sunday, Elneny said in Arsenal’s All or Nothing Amazon documentary, “This showed that now we can’t play around." Everyone was scared! Everyone is scared of their position because this happened to Aubameyang.
“Of course, if anyone who is not the captain of the team makes a small mistake, they are going to have the same problem, and no one needs that problem.”
