Mohamed Elneny admitted in an interview after the Zurich meeting that Arsenal players are “scared” of not fulfilling their responsibilities after team manager Mikel Arteta resolved the case involving former Gunners captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Next Sunday, Arsenal will face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, whose soon-to-be player is former Gunners captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. As we know, at the end of the trip to Gabon with the club and the Emirates and his departure there was a big upheaval – Mikel Arteta first removed him from the team, and then denied him the job of captain Aubameyang after he failed again to fulfill his intra. – club duties. It is not surprising that the tension is reaching its peak and the union of the two people is given a lot of comments in the media. Until now, however, there was no comment on the topic from people who know what happened from the inside, ie Arsenal’s long-time player Mohamed Elneny spoke about the matter.
We all thought at the time that if Mikel could do this with the captain of the team, what would he do with every other player? This situation showed us that we should be careful. Everyone was scared! Everyone feared for his position because of what happened to Aubameyang. Of course, whether you are captain or not, if you have the same attitude, you will have the same problem as Aubameyang, the message was simple. Such problems are not good for the team and are not needed by anyone.
We do not allow excessive individualism in the team. This is what our dressing room looks like today. Everyone loves each other and we all work together every day. This is what makes our squad so strong – we don’t have ego players in the team.
