Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang Responds To Arsenal Trying To End His Friendship With AFTV's Troopz
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has responded to reports that Arsenal are to stop AFTV's Troopz from using his executive box.
The Arsenal captain took to Instagram yesterday following The Athletics's report that there were complaints about Troopz getting to use the box.
Arsenal captain Aubameyang has now responded to the rumours in a post on Instagram saying he's heard 'a lot of bull**it'.
The full statement reads:
"I just arrived in Gabon and heared a lot of bullsh*ts. I talk with who I want whenever I want and if somebody's not happy with it... you already know."
It's unknown if this is a response to The Athletic for the report or if it's a response to Arsenal about the rumours.
Troopz has also fired back over the claims in a video on AFTV, stating they are not true.

Troopz and AFTV presenter Robbie Lyle repeatedly say that the report is 'fake news' and that Troopz has never been invited by Aubameyang into his box.
"VBet invited me, they invited me to the game.
Aubameyang has irritated a number of people at #AFC by developing a relation with AFTV. Team-mates and staff have been left unimpressed by him 'liking' certain posts about Emery and Xhaka. He has been asked to stop engaging with one of the contributors: "Troopz" [@TheAthleticUK]

"Aubameyang's box is two doors along, is that my problem?"
Lyle then asks Troopz about a picture of the duo in the box and Troopz says that the 30-year-old took a picture and gave him a shirt to give to his son.
AFTV have over 1 million subscribers on YouTube and their passionate opinions are frowned upon by the Gunners hierarchy.
Just 12 games in and we've blamed VAR, AFTV, Ozil's carjacking, Koscielny leaving and the "Noise" for our performances.- amy (@amyampaire) November 11, 2019
More deflection tactics from a cowardly board. Everyone else is the root cause of this club being on a downward trajectory except those who hold the power.
It's another saga that has added to a turbulent season at the Emirates.
Arsenal currently sit sixth and are eight points outside the top four with pressure building on manager Unai Emery every passing week.
Do you think Arsenal will finish in the top four this season?
