Aubameyang has past his best says Redknapp


Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has lost his ‘superpower’, according to former England midfielder Jamie Redknapp.

The Gabon international endured a difficult game in the 1-0 loss to Manchester City on Sunday, failing to register a single shot on target.

“Aubameyang is past his best,” Redknapp said on Sky Sports. “He’s going to have moments; he’s going to get hat-tricks. But when I watch him sometimes, it’s like he’s lost his superpower.

“I saw him run past people when he first came to the Premier League. I saw him run past people at Dortmund. Now I’m seeing a player who looks like he’s going to get bullied.

“He’s your leading light, but the likes of [Bukayo] Saka and [Emile] Smith Rowe, they’re the ones leading the way.”

last year President of Gabon Football Association Pierre Alain Mounguengui urged Aubameyang to leave Arsenal in the summer in order to better his career.

Aubameyang joined the Gunners from Borussia Dortmund in 2018 for a fee of 64 million euros, and since has only won two runners up medals in the Europa League and the EFL Cup, respectively.

“I don’t want to say that Arsenal aren’t ambitious, but Arsenal don’t have ambitions as high as some other clubs as far as Europe is concerned.” Mounguengui told ESPN.”Right now, he’s at Arsenal, and he’s won nothing here, so it’s a collective failing.”If Pierre could secure a contract with a more ambitious club, he’d definitely find his place there” he had said.
