It has been a relaxed week for Arsenal players. The mood around the club is incredible at the moment and a deserved break from the hectic schedule has helped all our stars relax.
Skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang jumped on Twitch yesterday to stream FIFA 21 ultimate team.
The Gabon star was having a look at his teammates’ special cards and Bukayo Saka’s Future Stars item worth over two and a half million coins really caught his attention.
Auba said, as per Football London: “Saka? Let’s see something, if Saka got a new card maybe? I dunno. Let’s check, my little chilli, special card let’s see. WOOOF!
“Ok ok ok ok, my little chilli’s on fire! Oh my god, two million, need to buy this one.”
You can’t not love Auba!
There is a reason why the younger players absolutely love having Aubameyang around them. The Arsenal skipper is a fantastic character to have around the squad, and his reaction to Saka’s card showed exactly that.
A lot has been said this season about Aubameyang’s leadership. Many pundits have had a go at our skipper for not shouting and screaming on the pitch when things aren’t going well for us. A few even urged Mikel Arteta to change our captain.
The Arsenal boss ignored everyone and rightly so.
A captain leads by example and how he treats his fellow players. There hasn’t been a single complaint about Auba’s conduct behind the scenes, and there is a reason why he is absolutely loved by every player in the squad.
Auba and Saka’s chemistry has been brilliant – both on and off the pitch. Hopefully, this can continue until the end of the season and beyond, before the Gabon star hands over the reigns to his ‘little chilli’ when he decides to move on.
