EPL: Tuchel reveals he will contact Aubameyang after he is stripped of Arsenal captaincy


Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has admitted he will contact Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, after he was stripped of the Arsenal captaincy.

The Gunners took the decision on Tuesday over what they described as a “disciplinary breach”.

This has led to speculation over Aubameyang’s future at the Emirates.

The 32-year-old has been dropped from Mikel Arteta‘s squad for their Premier League clash against West Ham on Wednesday night.

Aubameyang worked under Tuchel at Borussia Dortmund as the forward helped the Chelsea boss win his first major honour as a coach in 2017 – the DFB Pokal.

And the German says he feels “sorry” that he has got himself into a troubling situation at Arsenal and plans to reach out to his former player at some point.

Asked whether he will contact Aubameyang about losing the captaincy, he said: “I will at some point. I feel sorry that he is in trouble.

“I believe in his positive character but I am not involved in this situation or his club. It is just about my picture & relationship”.
