Man United vs Arsenal: Mikel Arteta issues warning to Aubameyang

by OtownGist

Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta, has warned captain, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, that he cannot afford his current lack of confidence in front of goal to have a negative impact on the other aspect of his game for the Gunners.

Aubameyang has not scored a goal for Arsenal in their last five games.

The Gabonese international striker, who has missed his last two penalties for Arsenal, was praised for his work rate by Arteta and pundits during the early weeks of the season.

But Arteta has now told Aubameyang he cannot afford to let those energy levels drop, regardless of how many goals he is scoring for the North London club.

“To put the ball in the net or not can be a difference of millimetres or by a second and Auba hasn’t lost that capacity,” Arteta said at his pre-match press conference ahead of the Man United clash.

“What he cannot lose is the rest of his game. He cannot think, ‘I am going to do a little bit less of that now to score more goals.’
