The Arsenal manager has let it be known that he has never seen Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang work as hard as in recent days.
After a difficult campaign during the past campaign, Aubameyang is starting to regain his good habits this season. This was particularly true during Friday’s game against Aston Villa where he offered himself a goal.
And Arteta believes the Gabon international can improve even more and guide the Gunners to great success. “I have never seen Auba transmit what he does now”, said the Spanish coach on the club’s official website.
“Aubameyang must have a more important role”
“Other than the goals, the celebration when they put the ball in the net, do you see the way he runs? The way he takes the ball and directs the game. I prefer this Auba. For me it’s a click. He realizes that his role must go far beyond [de celui qu’il avait avant] », continued the Iberian coach about the former Stéphanois.
Not to miss
Arteta concluded by letting go : “He had to take the lead. I would say the same with Laca [Alexandre Lacazette]. They set an example and not only in matches but also on the training ground. “
Aubameyang is four goals scored and an assist offered since the start of the season in the Premier League. Lacazette has only one achievement. The Frenchman has long been confined to the bench before regaining an important status.
After a complicated start to the course in 2021/2022, Arsenal are making a good comeback in PL. After a series of 5 games without a win, the Londoners regained the first half of the table (10th).
