Arsenal skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang deactivated his Twitter account last night after being criticised by some of his fans for not speaking out against the European Super League.
Some of the comments he received were absolutely unacceptable. People need to understand that the players and the manager had nothing to do with the decision – it’s all on the owners.
That didn’t spare Auba from receiving a ton of hate online. He took a stand and deactivated his Twitter, but he has broken his silence on the Super League on his Instagram after Arsenal announced that we will not be participating in the rogue competition.
Auba is absolutely spot on. The right decision has been made, but it’s just a shame that the owners of all six English clubs needed a ton of backlash from the supporters before they had some sense stuffed into their heads.
The whole point behind the European Super League was greed. Yes, football clubs need money to survive – the more, the better. However, disregarding sporting merit and the basic principles of the game was never going to be accepted.
The amazing thing from last night is that football won. Fans won. There is no place for power and greed in our beloved sport. We’ve made ourselves heard now and hopefully, we can continue to be loud until we can force Stan Kroenke and co out of our club.
