‘He isn’t a leader for Arsenal on or off the field’ Ex-Gunner lays into star man Aubameyang
Jermaine Pennant has slammed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who he claims isn’t a leader for Arsenal on or off the field.
Aubameyang was the last big transfer signing that club legend Arsene Wenger made at the club, and since then, the Gaon hitman has fully established himself as one of the most deadly attackers in the Premier League.
However, after signing that massive £350,000-a-week contract in the summer, he has looked nothing like the player he has been over the past few seasons and he has been slated for his performances on the pitch.
WHAT HAS BEEN SAID?
Former Arsenal winger Pennant now claims that he only got the captain’s role on performances alone, but doesn’t provide anything as the man wearing the armband on or off the pitch.
“Aubameyang got the armband on his performances in previous seasons, due to scoring a lot of goals and being a fan favourite,” he told talkSPORT.
“With the struggles Arsenal are going through, I feel that’s why he was given the captaincy, not because he’s a leader off the pitch.
“I don’t think he’s a leader on the pitch either. Not only is he not scoring, but he’s turning up late, he’s getting dropped – as a captain you shouldn’t be doing that.
“I would always throw Steven Gerrard into this conversation, because he led by example and you would never see him turn up late, you would never see him getting dropped for any misdemeanours on the field or off the field.”
