Aubameyang was brought on from the bench in a disappointing 1-2 loss to Arsenal Everton on Monday night and is expected to compete to return to the starting XI against the saints.
However, he was not included in the matchday squad after reportedly missing practice on Friday.
Speaking before the match, coach Mikel Arteta said: ‘Unfortunately (Aubameyang did not play) due to a disciplinary violation.
‘I think we’ve been very consistent, there are some non-negotiables in the team that we’ve set ourselves and as a club and he’s not in. This is certainly not an easy situation, we don’t want our club captain to be in that situation. ‘
And Sherwood has criticized Gabon internationally for its actions, describing them as ‘an absolute disgrace.’
‘I think the manager is under a lot of pressure, but what he can’t stand is the players throwing toys out of trolleys and thinking because I’m on the bench at Everton. , I can do whatever I want and have no restrictions with the rest of the players,’ he told Sky Sports.
‘I think it’s an absolute disgrace.
Asked if it was a mistake to hand him the captain’s armband in the first place, the former Tottenham manager added: ‘Great point, the armband is a man who leads by example, he brings people to life and leads by example.
‘If he’s not a good talker then he has to lead by example. But he has not set an example off the pitch and neither has he on the pitch. ‘
