Arsenal: Fans cannot agree on who should inherit the captain’s armband

Arsenal fans have reacted to legend Martin Keown after he said that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the “safer bet” to become the captain of the club.

The club is in crisis mode after skipper Granit Xhaka went into meltdown as he was substituted during the Gunners’ 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace. He reacted furiously as fans sarcastically cheered the fact he was being brought off the field and was then being heckled for not getting off the pitch quickly enough.

In reaction to the supporters, the Switzerland international goaded and swore at the crowd, throwing the captain’s armband and shirt to the ground in the process.

Keown believes (relayed by AFTVMedia on Twitter) that Emery is to blame as much as Xhaka is, pointing out that letting the players choose the captaincy means there is a loss of understanding in terms of what real leadership is. He added that Gabonese striker Aubameyang is the best alternative to Xhaka.

Supporters could not agree with each other about Keown’s comments and offered many suggestions as to who should be the new Arsenal captain.
