Bye Bye Bye? Arsenal board told ‘they need to get rid’ of £500,000-a-week duo
Kevin Campbell thinks Arsenal should get rid of Granit Xhaka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
The Gunners striker was recently stripped of the captaincy after his latest disciplinary breach and hasn’t played for the club since December 6.
Aged 32, on £350,000-a-week and out of form this season, Arsenal may be tempted to shift Aubameyang rather than bring him back into the first-team setup
Meanwhile, Xhaka is a player that has been constantly linked with a move away from the Arsenal for the last few seasons, with his performances on the pitch simply not good enough for a top Premier League player.
And with Mikel Arteta seemingly letting a number of players leave, The Gunners legend reckons the Swiss midfielder and fellow team-mate Aubameyang keep letting the squad down and should be shown the exit.
Campbell said to Football Insider: “I don’t think he should be at the football club.
“When he has played alongside Thomas Partey this season, he has played pretty well. At the moment, he is the best partner for Partey. We need an upgrade though.
“You cannot bypass or overlook the face that he keeps costing the team when he gets sent off. He’s an experienced player. He’s supposed to be leading by example.
“Xhaka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are not setting the right example. You cannot trust or rely on them.
“If you can’t trust Xhaka, what is the point in having him? I would rather have someone I can trust being on that pitch. He has done many stupid things.”
Look, there are a number of players at the Emirates that could be sold and they would not be missed, these two players are some of those. So the Gunners need to let them leave and bring in players that will actually make a difference to the side
