🎙 Mikel Arteta press conference ahead of the game against West Ham: 🚨 On stripping Aubameyang from the captaincy: "I don't have much more to say. I think it's a really clear statement from the club. It's a decision we've made following the last incident we had with the player and this is where we stand." 🔴⚪️ On how did Auba take it: "Yes, we did it both with the club and face to face with the player. He had to accept the decision." 🔴⚪️ On the next captain: "We have the leadership group. In the last game, we had Laca. We had Granit who was captain as well. We will follow that. It's not the time to make any rash decision." 🔴⚪️ On how the players reacted: "They accepted the decision. They know because they have committed to it and we want to take our culture and how we want to represent the football club to a different level." More to follow...
