Arsenal boss Emery hints Aubameyang could keep captaincy

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has hinted Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could keep the captaincy after their draw with Wolves.

Granit Xhaka was left out of the squad for the Gunners' 1-1 draw with Wolves on Saturday, after his controversial spat with fans as he was substituted during last weekend's meeting with Crystal Palace.

Aubameyang stepped in to lead in his absence, and opened the scoring midway through the first half with his 50th goal for the club, before Raul Jimenez's header earned Wolves a point.

Aubameyang is already part of Emery's five-man leadership group - alongside Xhaka, Mesut Ozil, Alexandre Lacazette and Hector Bellerin – and when asked whether he may be the man to take the job full-time, Emery said: “[He] could do.

"I think he can take that responsibility and today he did that," Emery added. “He is one of the captains and I think he can take that responsibility, but we are going to analyse the match first and the situation for the next matches and decide."
