Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been accused of not being a ‘staff participant’ and likened to Mesut Ozil after Arsenal’s 3-Zero loss to Liverpool.
The Gunners’ captain and star ahead didn’t have his finest recreation within the humbling defeat and was unable to register a shot on purpose.
At factors, with Mikel Arteta’s aspect camped deep in their very own half, the Gabonese ace seemed as if he may have been taking part in at left-back alongside Kieran Tierney.
And the staff efficiency total was so poor that the Spanish boss apologised for the way in which he set his staff out – refusing responsible his gamers.
However talkSPORT pundit Tony Cascarino was blissful to level out the show of their skipper.
He informed the Weekend Sports activities Breakfast: “Aubameyang was almost taking part in behind Tierney.
“He does frustrate me anyway as a result of I do suppose he’s a kind of gamers the place I have a look at him and suppose ‘your numbers, are they an phantasm?’ As a result of that’s the solely argument.
“He jogs my memory of a second [Mesut] Ozil the place it’s going. He’s 31 years outdated, he’s 32 in June.
“I keep in mind having a dialog about Aubameyang and the one debate and why you all the time get involved about being important of him, his numbers let you know he’s an awesome striker and will get numerous objectives however to me I simply don’t see a staff participant there. I simply don’t.”
Cascarino continued. “Christophe Galtier at Lille, he’s the supervisor. I used to be with him at Marseille. He had Aubameyang at Saint-Etienne and his purpose ratio was one in two or shut to 1 in two.
“He performed at Monaco, he performed for a couple of French golf equipment in his profession and there has all the time been a little bit of a fable about him, I say a fable however, lots of people have by no means fairly recognized [about him], effectively, everybody is aware of he’s an awesome goalscorer. He all the time will get a very good return however they’ve by no means fairly recognized how good of a participant he actually is.
“I believe he’s, how do I say this, the numbers man with the perfect purpose stats, or top-of-the-line, however he’s truly the worst participant than a whole lot of different goalscorers.
“You get all these goalscorers, like [Sergio] Aguero will get objectives and [Jamie] Vardy will get objectives, and plenty of others however I believe he’s a far worse staff participant than any of them.”
