talkSPORT pundit Tony Cascarino has criticised Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyeng for his behaviour towards Joe Willock against Brighton.
The former Chelsea striker believes the Gabonese talisman was ‘out of order’ for his reaction to a poor pass from the young midfielder.
The 30-year-old was visibly frustrated with the teenager, and it hasn’t sat right with some fans, and Cascarino.
He said (talkSPORT): “There was an incident with Willock on Thursday night where he takes a bit of stick from Aubameyang, which I thought was totally out of order.
“Aubameyang berated him. Willock’s a young kid coming into the game. It was totally out of order.”
It was a night to forget for the Gunners, who lost the game 2-1 to the Seagulls.
The north Londoners will have the chance to bounce back against West Ham United on Monday – three points would signal their first win in nine games.
TBR’s view – Aubameyang outburst a concern
Aubameyang’s behaviour was somewhat concerning.
To see him that annoyed at one of his teammates, especially a young player, would suggest he is a frustrated individual at the moment.
Maybe a quiet word would have sufficed.
The last thing Arsenal need right now is another captaincy issue, and most fans will surely hope to see him encouraging his teammates during tough times rather than laying into them.
