In an advertisement for Chelsea’s Premier League match against Arsenal on Sunday, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang made a few crude remarks that Mikel Arteta downplayed.
Since leaving Arsenal to join Barcelona earlier this year, Aubameyang won’t have faced Arteta and Arsenal before.
In the last few months of his time at Arsenal, Aubameyang and Arteta’s friendship suffered as a result of Arteta losing the captaincy after a string of misconduct.
Aubameyang’s move to Barcelona on a free transfer was made possible by Arteta’s approval for Arsenal to terminate Aubameyang’s contract in February.
However, the Spanish team had to sell Aubameyang in the summer due to their financial difficulties, and the 33-year-old ultimately joined Chelsea in the final hours of the transfer window.
By appearing in a BT Sport commercial before the game on Sunday at Stamford Bridge, Aubameyang has heightened the enmity between Arsenal fans and the player.
Aubameyang stated his return to Arsenal, his color of choice, and his readiness during the advertisement.
You expect players to do that, Arteta retorted in response to a question about Aubameyang’s statement.
When asked how they feel about their current location, all of our players will express the same sentiment.
Aubameyang can be very dangerous, according to Arteta, who responded to a question about how dangerous he might be against Arsenal.
If Auba is gifted with anything, it is the ability to score goals, and he will continue to do so until the day he decides he has had enough of playing football.
Before developing a strategy to prevent that, we must first examine what Chelsea does.
Following his exposure as criticizing Arteta’s man-management tactics, Aubameyang also infuriated Arsenal fans last month.
According to Aubameyang, Arteta is incapable of managing large characters or large players.
Young players who listen without speaking are what Arteta needs.
