Arsenal star under investigation over possible breach of COVID-19 rules

Arsenal has initiated the investigation process to unravel whether Captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has breached the club’s strict COVID-19 protocols.

There are suggestions that the 31-year-old, who scored a hat-trick as gunners beat Leeds United 4-2 last Sunday, may have broken the lockdown rules of the club.

Gunners chiefs are planning talks with the forward after footage of him getting a new tattoo on his hand appeared on social media.

Aubameyang was filmed getting his new tattoo on the Instagram account of Spanish tattoo artist Alejandro Nicolas Bernal.

In the video clip Aubameyang and the artist were not wearing masks during the inking, which saw the Arsenal forward get the tattoo on his hand.

Regulations of the UK Government states that all mobile and static tattoo parlours must remain closed during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Arsenal have stated that they plan to sit down with Aubameyang to determine what happened before deciding further actions.

A statement from the club said: “We will speak to the player about this matter and establish what has taken place.”

Arsenal want to determine exactly when Aubameyang got the new tattoo, as that currently remains unclear.

No further action will be taken until the club ascertain for certain whether any rules have been broken and their own strict bio secure bubble has been breached.

Aubameyang has only recently returned from a trip abroad after he was given time off by the club to visit his ill mother.

The Gunners skipper missed games against Southampton and Manchester United before returning to the squad.

Speaking after he scored a hat-trick against Leeds on Sunday, he thanked the club and the fans for the support they had given him while he was away.

“It’s been a tough time for me but now it’s time to get my smile back, to win games and score goals,” he said.
