Former Premier League striker Dean Windass has exclusively told the The Transfer Tavern that Arsenal can no longer trust captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Aubameyang has endured a difficult captain in north London, and has been unable to replicate his goalscoring exploits from previous seasons, with the Gabonese striker on course for his worst goal return for seven years having scored 14 in all competitions.
But the Gunners captain has been left out by Mikel Arteta more than once in recent weeks.
Aubameyang was axed from the side that beat Tottenham last month for turning up late, before his lacklustre display against Liverpool last weekend saw him left on the bench for Arsenal’s draw with Slavia Prague in the Europa League.
But Windass told The Transfer Tavern that he hasn’t been impressed with the striker’s attitude in recent weeks and has questioned whether he still wants to play for the club:
“Don’t get me wrong, he’s a talented boy. But, like Lacazette, you can’t trust him.
“They’re not going to dig in and they’re not going to pull you out if you’re getting beat. I wouldn’t want him in my team.
“Does he really want to be there? Does he think he’s better than Arsenal? That’s how it looks when he plays.”
