- Aubameyang was dropped from the Arsenal squad that faced Southampton Saturday, December 11
- Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta revealed he made the decision due to a disciplinary breach
- Sutton now believes the Gabonese will find it difficult to fight his way into the Gunners team
Premier League legend Chris Sutton contends Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's career at the Emirates is over after appearing to fall out with Mikel Arteta.
The Arsenal skipper was on Saturday, December 11, dropped from the squad that played against Southampton, with Mikel revealing the forward was axed due to a disciplinary breach.
Arteta spoke broadly about the decision before the kickoff, divulging Auba had failed to meet some "non-negotiables" set for the team.
"Unfortunately due to a disciplinary breach. I think we have been very consistent that we have certain non-negotiables in the team that we have set ourselves as a club, and he's not involved today," the Arsenal boss said.
According to Sutton, this could now mark the beginning of the end of Auba's career with the Gunners and it is only a matter of time before he is stripped of the captaincy.
"What I do find interesting is that Arteta could have kept it quiet, in-house, but he hasn't done. He knows what's going to happen now that it's out in the public domain," the ex-Chelsea star noted.
"There's clearly a rift between the two parties and something has got to give. it will be interesting how this one will be resolved," he added.
The development comes at a time Aubameyang is facing an uncertain future with Arsenal following a string of poor performances.
Reports in the UK contend Arsenal chiefs are ready to count their losses and get rid of the Gabonese striker.
