Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has confirmed he will be leaving Twitter as the outrage surrounding the European Super League takes over the social media site.
The Arsenal captain has been recovering in hospital after contracting malaria whilst on international duty with Gabon.
While he has been out of action, the footballing landscape has been changing rapidly around him after Sunday night’s groundbreaking announcement.
At that point, Arsenal confirmed they would be one of the 12 Founding Members of the highly controversial break away Super League.
The competition was set to effectively replace the current European competitions and in doing so, guaranteeing the elite clubs across the continent a place in the tournament.
However, after widespread criticism from governments, governing bodies and fans, it is believed the competition is on the brink of collapse.
Fellow members Manchester City and Chelsea are both preparing documentation to leave the ESL, while Atletico Madrid are understood to be doing similar.
Shortly after the news had emerged, Aubameyang took to Twitter with a length post, stating he would leave the site.
He mentioned the fact that the doomed competition had taken over more important matters, including the coronavirus pandemic and the issue regarding online abuse and racism.
The post read: “I ain’t missed you Twitter. So we not allowed to talk about anything? Only football and Super League? No more talking about Covid?!
“Or online abuse or racism…nice.
“Even sick (without fone), I was feeling better than now with fone (sic) let me turn it off. See u.”
He has since deleted his Twitter account, although his Instagram account, which has over 10million followers, currently remains active.
