Gabriel Magalhaes has lifted the lid on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s Arsenal exit – with the Gunners defender revealing that Aubameyang left the club due to an ‘issue with the coaching staff’.
The Gabon star was an influential figure at the Emirates Stadium ever since he arrived at the club back in 2018.
However, he was ostracised from first-team fold at Arsenal this season by Mikel Arteta, who cited a ‘discipinary breach’ as the reason for Aubameyang’s exile.
The striker was stripped of the Arsenal captaincy soon after before he was booted out of the club for good during the January transfer window.
Despite struggling in front of goal for the Gunners prior to his spell out of the team, Aubameyang has hit the ground running since sealing a switch to Barcelona.
Aubameyang’s messy exit was an unfortunate way to end to his fruitful four-year spell in north London.
He quickly established himself as a fan favourite in the capital following his switch from Borussia Dortmund and tasted FA Cup glory during his penultimate year with the Gunners.
While Aubameyang will play no further part in Arsenal’s bid to end their multi-year exile from the Champions League, Gabriel is set to play a starring role for Arteta’s side.
The Brazilian’s rock-solid partnership with Ben White has been the cornerstone of Arsenal’s impressive campaign to date.
