The captain of Arsenal football club, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, has reactivated his Twitter page hours after he deactivated it.
The 31-year-old striker on Tuesday took to Twitter to share his thought on the coverage of the controversial European Super League. He argued that the social media platform paid too much attention to the proposed league than on the dreaded coronavirus pandemic and social media abuse.
Recall that on Sunday, April 18, the world was blown away when 12 top clubs in Europe confirmed that they have signed up for the proposed European Super League. The league which was scheduled to kick-off in the 2022-2023 season was projected to be a rival league to the UEFA Champions League.
Among the 12 clubs that signed up for the league, the Premier League had 6 clubs which include Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United, Manchester City, and Chelsea.
All the teams involved were heavily criticized especially the clubs from the Premier League which forced the clubs to withdraw from the planned league.
At the height of this, Aubameyang who has been off from social media while he tries to recover from a malaria infection tweeted on Tuesday that he was leaving social media.
He tweeted: “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. Let me turn it off. See u.”
However, the 31-year-old Gabonese striker is back on Twitter and has deleted his initial tweet. Afterward, he tweeted that he deactivated his Twitter page on Tuesday out of being emotional.
Aubameyang wrote: “Got a bit too emotional last night. Bottom line is – yesterday was a big day for football and our fans and an even bigger day for social justice Soccer ball”.
