Replacing G by the later, we are back to the case where all proper centralisers have bounded size, a contradiction with Proposition 3.3.
On properties of (weakly) small groups
By Fact 5.1, there exists a finite intersection H of centralisers of elements in A such that H is minimal up to finite index.
