And Premier League icon Cole agrees with ArtetaDecided to set an example for his youth team.

Cole told BT Sport: “I think it’s a brave decision but I think it’s the right one.

“This is not the first incident and when I look at (Patrick) Vieira, (Tony) Adams, etc., they have problems, well documented, but they are leaders.

“I never felt comfortable with Aubameyang on that leadership team.

“There’s a lot of people in this stadium that want to go through the walls to wear that Arsenal shirt. I think it’s sacrifice for the players to be late, I really do.”

Arsenal did well on Wednesday without Aubameyang when they comfortably beat an injured person West Ham 2-0 at Emirates.
