Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Told To Stop Inviting Troopz From AFTV Into His Executive Box
Arsenal have told Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to stop inviting AFTV personality Troopz into his executive box on match days.
The 30-year-old has struck up a friendship with the YouTube pundit and the duo have been pictured together in the past.
The Athletic are now reporting that the Gabon international has been instructed to stop letting Troopz into his box which is meant to be for family members.

Complaints have also been lodged by other fans surrounding the influencer getting to use the box.
It's not the only drama that new Arsenal skipper Aubameyang has been caught up in this week.
The former Borussia Dortmund man's activity on Instagram has also come under scrutiny.
He has left staff and teammates 'unimpressed' after liking posts criticising under fire boss Unai Emery as well as encouraging the sale of former captain Granit Xhaka.
It has left many in the dressing room wondering if Aubameyang is the right pick to be the new captain after 'throwing Xhaka under the bus.'
It has been a torrid season at the Emirates so far with the Gunners languishing in sixth place as pressure continues to mount on Emery.
Arsenal fans even chanted 'sacked in the morning' on Saturday to mock their manager during their 2-0 defeat to Leicester City.

Following the defeat on Saturday, Emery told Sky Sports:
"Our challenge in the next matches is to recover the points for us and also to in the long term, in 38 matches, little by little get better for our target at the end.
"But we are going to think only for the next matches and the next three points."
They currently sit eight points behind Manchester City and are stuck in a slump and mired by numerous controversies.
Things look like they are set to get worse before they get better at the Emirates Stadium.
