Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's Brother Deletes Comment About Granit Xhaka's Arsenal Captaincy

The Arsenal boss has been on the lookout for a new captain after Laurent Koscielny left the club in the summer and has taken time to make his decision. Meanwhile Arsenal are yet to name a vice-captain but speculations are that it will be one between Pierre-Emrick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.

Xhaka was booed by the home fans when he was substituted during Arsenal's dramatic win over Aston Villa on Sunday and a number of the club's supporters were clearly unimpressed with Firday's news.

"I spoke with him and we want to change that opinion outside because that respect that he has inside, is very, very important", he added.

"I would have gone for Aubameyang, he would have been a pretty good fit".

"I don't want silly, insane tackles, I want him to sit in front of the defence, I want to be picking out those diagonal passes, I want to see him talking to players, cajoling players and in their ears". The most important things about Hector are his attitude and experience.

"We are going to use him with Ainsley and Calum Chambers to help us in this position".

Arsenal coach Unai Emery has named Switzerland global Granit Xhaka as the Premier League team captain, BBC's David Ornstein disclosed.

This once again means that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a decidedly barebones lineup to play with for what is a massive game against Unai Emery's side.

"We had a vote the other week, so we'll see what happens and see who gets named", defender Holding told reporters after Tuesday's 5-0 EFL Cup win against Nottingham Forest.

Arsenal players were asked to vote for their choice as club captain in a secret ballot, Rob Holding has revealed.

"It was a great moment".

Here is how we think United can best line up with the options at the Norwegian's disposal.
