Arsenal’s captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been described as “out of order” for reacting angrily towards Joe Willock in the Gunners 2-1 defeat at home to Brighton last Thursday by former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino.
The former Ireland international was reacting to the Gabon’s international angry outburst at the young England player when he misplaced a pass, an apparent show of frustration as things weren’t working in favour of the North London team on the night.
Cascarino slammed the decision and thought it was an act uncalled for by the newly-installed Arsenal captain to a player still learning the ropes of the game.
“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,” Cascarino told talkSPORT.
“Aubameyang berated him. Willock’s a young kid coming into the game. It was totally out of order.”
The result of the defeat puts more pressure on interim boss Freddie Ljungberg who is yet to taste victory during his time in charge.
There is a chance for that to happen and end Arsenal’s worst run in 42 years when they take on West Ham United at the London Stadium on Monday night.
