So Aubameyang's brother has put a sad face on @AFTVMedia about the Xhaka being our captain. If this isn't the right choice,I think it's poor form from fellow team mates and families to express their opinion here.There has to be an issue between them inside the club. #ARSENAL #AFC

Pierre-Emerick was under consideration for Arsenal captaincy along with Rob Holding and David Luiz, among others, but Emery has opted for the Swiss enforcer, who has previously worn the captain's armband.
Xhaka will lead out his team for the first time on a full-time basis on Monday night when Arsenal face Manchester United at Old Trafford.
