New Arsenal Captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Crashes Lamborghini Prior to Leicester Defeat

​Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was involved in a car accident but was left unhurt after his Lamborghini collided with another vehicle on Friday evening. 

Aubameyang was returning home following a training session when the accident occurred, and the 30-year-old was pictured by passers-by as he stood next to the crumpled bonnet of his supercar.

The incident happened near the Potters Bar, Hertfordshire area between Aubameyang's Lamborghini and a Mercedes, and ​The ​Sun reported that no one was hurt during the collision. 

"It was rush-hour so cars were not going fast and travelling around them," an onlooker told the paper. 

​Aubameyang escaped unscathed from the crash and played in Arsenal's 2-0 defeat to ​Leicester City on Saturday evening, as the Gunners slipped to their third defeat of the season, and now sit behind Sheffield United in the Premier League table. 

The 30-year-old was recently appointed as Arsenal's new first-team captain, following a clash between supporters and Granit Xhaka in their 2-2 draw with ​Crystal Palace. Xhaka was booed as he left the pitch when substituted, and the Swiss international retaliated by cupping his ears to the fans and swearing.


Aubameyang has made a good start to the new season, bagging eight goals in 12 matches and regularly popping up to spare the blushes of his faltering teammates. 

​Arsenal boss Unai Emery has come under increasing pressure during his time at the Emirates Stadium, and the Spaniard's fate seems to be in the balance after the Gunners' lacklustre display against the Foxes. 

The north London club face ​Southampton after the international break in what will be seen as a must-win match for Emery if he is to remain in charge of the club, and with the likes of Aubameyang stalling over contract talks, Arsenal must make the right decision if they are to keep their prized assets.
