Pundit Tony Cascarino slams Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, along with Mesut Ozil.
Arsenal has struggled for much of this season and their win over West Ham was a welcome sign of relief for both the players and the fans.
Several players at the club haven’t been pulling their weight, but one player who can’t be accused of that is Pierre Emerick Aubameyang.
The Gabonese attacker has come to the rescue of Arsenal on so many occasions and he has already scored 11 times in the league this season.
However, former Chelsea player Tony Cascarino doesn’t believe he is one of those with positive influence at the club.
He even believes that the Gabonese attacker is not a team player and insists that he is just as lazy as Mesut Ozil is.
“Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored last night but he really hurts Arsenal with his poor attitude,” he wrote for The Times per The Express.
“People talk about his goalscoring record – and it is indeed very good – but he needs to be a team player.
“Last night he was just letting opposing defenders head the ball away without even making a challenge.
“Along with Mesut Ozil, he is the laziest player in the side.
“His work ethic for a senior player is bordering on disgusting.
“Last week against Brighton & Hove Albion he remonstrated with Joe Willock, his young colleague, when he should be encouraging him.
“He would be the first one out of the club if it was up to me.”
That seems a little harsh to me, well on Aubameyang anyway. I can understand the comment about Ozil, that is true but Aubameyang?
Seems to me that Caascarino has some sort of agenda here, yes, Auba was well wrong for his treatment of Willock but putting him in the same bracket as Ozil for effort is just insulting in my opinion.
