‘HE’S NOT GOOD ENOUGH’: JAMIE O’HARA SLATES ARSENAL PLAYER, CLAIMS GUNNERS BETTER WITHOUT HIM

‘HE’S NOT GOOD ENOUGH’: JAMIE O’HARA SLATES ARSENAL PLAYER, CLAIMS GUNNERS BETTER WITHOUT HIM


Arsenal is better off without club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the starting XI, according to Jamie O'Hara of talkSPORT.



Arsenal advanced to the Europa League semi-finals with a 4-0 victory over Slavia Prague on Thursday night.


After it was announced that Aubameyang, 31, was suffering from malaria contracted while on international duty last month, he remained in London.

Even before the Gabon striker's illness, the Gunners captain has struggled mightily this season, scoring just 14 goals in all competitions.

To put things in perspective, Aubameyang scored exactly 60 goals in his first two full seasons at the Emirates Stadium, demonstrating his decline this time.

Mikel Arteta hasn't been shy about benching the former Borussia Dortmund player in recent games, including the North London derby victory over Tottenham Hotspur last month after he arrived late for the game, and O'Hara suggests the Spaniard can continue to do so in the future.



“He's not nice enough,” he told talkSPORT on Thursday morning. He's been underwhelming this season, and he doesn't contribute to the team's success. He isn't in any way a king. 

He's supposed to be the captain, but he's running late. He doesn't set an example, and Arsenal is a better team when he isn't on the field. He's no longer their best player.”

Given that Arsenal just achieved their best result of the season without the striker, it's difficult to disagree with O'Hara's assertion that Arteta's side isn't in desperate need of him.

That said, if he can reclaim his best form between now and the end of the season, it would be a huge boost for the North Londoners, as no one else in the squad comes near.

That said, if he can reclaim his best form between now and the end of the season, it would be a huge boost for the North Londoners, because nobody in the squad comes close to Aubameyang when it comes to scoring goals when he's on form.
