“You are a dictator and cannot manage big players” – Aubameyang tells Mikel Arteta

Chelsea striker, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang has hit out at Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta calling his ex coach a dictator who’s only comfortable with young players.

Aubameyang fell out with Arteta during his last few months at the club which resulted in the coach stripping him of his captaincy and demoting him to the reserves.

The Gabon International eventually left for Barcelona and is now back at chelsea.

Now, the striker has hit out at Arteta saying he’s only comfortable with young players because he can’t handle big players.

He said :

“I remember they [Barcelona] first called my father,” 

“We knew the coach, Xavi, then he called me and said there is an opportunity because you have those problems with Arsenal, but if you come you will help us a lot, so I said, ‘okay’.

“But to manage big characters or big players, he [Arteta] can’t deal with it.

“He [Arteta] needs some young players, they don’t say anything, they listen.”

Arteta also had problems with former Arsenal star, Mesut Ozil and ended up stripping him of the captain armband too.
