New episodes of “All or Nothing: Arsenal” were released Thursday, August 11 on Amazon Prime Video, and Episode 4 is about the beginning of the end of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s time at Colney. The club captain left the club on a sour note after his relationship with manager Mikel Arteta steadily deteriorated over the season, and ‘Respect, Commitment, Passion’ tells the inside story of Auba’s bench and of his subsequent suspension as skipper.
One of the most surprising revelations was when Arteta revealed that he had documented all of Auba’s infractions which he believed went against what the club was all about. A conversation between Mark Gonnella, Arsenal’s director of media, communications and community affairs, and Arteta showed that the latter was keen to ensure he was trying to instill a winning culture and that the lack of attention from ‘Auba to this mainly as a leader in the dressing room was unacceptable. After a pre-match press conference, the duo are seen talking where the manager tells media directors he has taken note of all their issues.

This is followed by a conversation between Edu Gaspar and Richard Garlick who call the club’s lawyer and discuss Auba’s status in the squad. A question from the lawyer about his faults is answered by Garlick who says: “Mikel [Arteta] got a file. It’s a catalog of offenses he committed that led to this. This proves that management had taken note of the striker’s mistakes. At the end of the episode, there was news in camp that he had made his way to Barcelona, a team he would eventually move to after his time with the Gunners.
He agreed a deal to join Barcelona in February 2022 and the latest update related to the player was that Chelsea agreed to buy him along with midfielder De Jong if the Spanish club allowed them to leave. Sky Sports News senior reporter Melissa Reddy called him a flamboyant figure on the to place and split his two cents on Arteta’s decision. “I understand that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta was trying to create a culture of excellence and he couldn’t have someone – especially the captain and a senior player at the club – constantly flouting the rules.
“So he had to take a stand there and the direction he wanted to go was to go with a younger team.”
Episodes 4-6 of “All or Nothing: Arsenal” are streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
