“He was frustrated” Darren Bent insists Arsenal was right to offload Aubameyang

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has made a great start to life at Barcelona despite struggling in his last season at Arsenal.

The Gabon star fell out with Mikel Arteta and the Gunners’ boss banished him from the first team.

He eventually left Arsenal for the Spanish club before the last transfer window closed.

The Gunners have a shortage of strikers and they haven’t been scoring enough goals.

However, Auba is in top goalscoring form at Barca and he has scored 4 times in as many league games for them.

The Gunners would have been happy to get some goals from him now as they chase a place in the top four.

However, former Premier League star, Darren Bent says Arsenal will not regret selling him and he wasn’t performing well for them.

He told Talk Sport: “No they won’t [regret it] because he wasn’t showing that kind of form at Arsenal. I think he’d gone stale there. Clearly, he wasn’t happy at Arsenal. Arteta didn’t think he featured in their plans”

Auba also started very well at Arsenal before he allowed his poor discipline to get in the way.

The former Borussia Dortmund striker is an accomplished goal-scorer. However, he wasn’t delivering fine performances for us at the end and needed to leave the Emirates.

  1. “May have?”. No “may” about it! The man was a disgrace and shamed his shirt and his profession by his plain could not give a damn behaviour He had to go and he rightly was forced out , though he went willingly as he had no intent to even try for us

    But he was quite happy to carry on receiving £350k pw for sweet FA. Good riddance, say I!

    1. Only a non follower of Arsenal games would say arsenal was wrong or regrets shipping out Aubameyang. The man was simply not bothered about his own performances. He was missing glaring chances and never really got involved. May be he deliberately got on the wrong side just to get out. Good riddance….

  2. Ateta was the reason for Aub low form. The coach is proud, the fact that they played together, Arteta wanted to prove that he’s now the boss
