Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has deactivated his Twitter account after posting a cryptic tweet about the ongoing debate over the proposed European Super League.
The Gabonese forward has missed the last couple of games after falling ill with malaria. While the player is still recovering, the football world was rocked by the announcement of a new European Super League and the North London club were one of the 12 founding members.
The 31-year-old was frustrated with the now suspended competition gathering all the attention over social media instead of more important topics such as the COVID pandemic, racism and so on. Here is the forward’s final tweet(as per Goal):
“I ain’t missed you Twitter. So, we not allowed to talk about anything? Only football and Super League? No more talking about Covid?! Or online abuse or racism…nice. Even sick (without fone), I was feeling better than now with fone (sic) let me turn it off. See u.”
Despite this being his last activity on Twitter before deactivation, his Instagram account still remains active. The report in Goal states that the forward was set to be part of a meeting of Premier League captains on Wednesday, but it is still unclear if the meet will go ahead with the competition officially suspended.
If the league had gone ahead, it would have lead to major changes in the European football landscape. But with that proposal being suspended, it has given a chance for the game to return to a sense of normalcy. The North Londoners have a Europa League semi-final to worry about and the fans will be looking forward to action on the pitch rather than what’s happening off it.
Arsenal would be sweating over Aubameyang’s recovery as they look to end the season with a trophy. And perhaps as the striker wanted, with the Super League going on the backburner, the discussion will shift to more important topics such as the pandemic. It is vital that the Gunners have their captain back as soon as possible.
