Aubameyang may be in trouble as he gets caught with Alejandro – Arteta
Aubameyang on the 10th of February posted a video of himself in a tattoo parlour being given a tattoo on social media, this has caused an uproar and Arsenal confirmed they would speak to the player about the incidence.
In this video, neither Aubameyang nor the tattoo artist, a Barcelona based artist Alejandro Nicolas Bernal, were putting on masks, this raised some concerns that the striker may have broken coronavirus protocols as tattoo parlours are to be closed as part of lockdown restrictions.
Arteta confirmed Aubameyang has travelled to Italy with the Arsenal squad for Thursday night’s Europa League tie against Benfica and said: “Whatever we do with our players, we keep it internally. Some of the players have extended families at home and if any player does something that is not in the regulations, of course the club acts immediately but also privately.
Mikel Arteta has said there will be consequences for any Arsenal player found to be breaking coronavirus protocols but did not confirm if Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang did when he had a tattoo done last week.
“We try to advise every player so that they know the rules and they stick to those rules all the time. If someone doesn’t do it, we have to act.
Again, I can’t tell you who every player lives with but when somebody does something they shouldn’t be doing there will be consequences and if not, there won’t be.
“Arsenal’s round-of-32 first-leg tie against Benfica will take place in the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, with a second leg to come in Athens on February 25.
