Former Premier League star, Tim Sherwood has labelled Arsenal captain, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, a ‘disgrace.’
This was after the Gabonese was left out of the Gunners squad to play Southampton due to disciplinary reasons.
Mikel Arteta dropped Aubameyang from the matchday squad after reportedly missing training on Friday.
Speaking before the match, boss Mikel Arteta said: “Unfortunately (Aubameyang isn’t playing) due to a disciplinary breach.”
And Sherwood hit out at the 32-year-old for his actions, describing him as ‘an absolute disgrace.’
“I think the manager is under huge pressure, but what he can’t suffer is players throwing the toys out the pram and thinking because I’m sitting on the bench at Everton I can do whatever I want and not curb with the rest of the players,” he told Sky Sports.
“I think it’s an absolute disgrace.”
When asked whether it was a mistake to give him the captain’s armband in the first place, the former Tottenham manager added: “Great point, the armband is a man who leads by example, he pulls everyone into life and lead by example.
“If he’s not a good talker then he has to lead by example. But he’s not showing an example off the pitch and on the pitch, he isn’t either.”
