Tony Cascarino rips into Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and highlights why Freddie Ljungberg may be a bad manager.
Arsenal’s season doesn’t look like getting better even under a new manager and Tony Cascarino has slammed the club’s captain and their interim manager.
The Gunners have played two games under Freddie Ljungberg and it is hard to see a difference between the Swede and Unai Emery.
Ljungberg drew his first game and lost his second at home to Brighton, in both games Arsenal players looked very short on confidence and it seems it will take a while for the team to get back their winning mentality.
Cascarino was speaking about how Aubameyang reacted to a misplaced pass by Joe Willock in their game against Brighton.
He believed Aubameyang took the very wrong approach as the midfielder was still finding his feet in the game.
“There was an incident with Willock on Thursday night where he takes a bit of stick from Aubameyang, which I thought was totally out of order,” Cascarino told talkSPORT.
“Aubameyang berated him. Willock’s a young kid coming into the game. It was totally out of order.”
Cascarino has also not been impressed by Freddie Ljungberg and thinks the Swede is tinkering too much with his team too soon.
“He made changes after his very first game, that’s bad management. You’ve got to say, ‘You’re my first XI and I’m going to trust you even if we have a bad game’.
“I thought his selection was totally wrong against Norwich. He made changes which backfired and then he did it again against Brighton.”
No doubt some fans will just dismiss these comments because it is a pundit they don’t like but that does not mean he is wrong in his assessment. I think he is right. Aubameyang was out of order and Ljungberg has made some very bad decisions.
