EPL: I am the solution not the problem – Arteta fires back at Aubameyang

Arteta and Aubameyang

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has hit back at Pierre Emerick Aubameyang‘s suggestion that he was the problem, after the player left for Barcelona.

Aubameyang joined the LaLiga giants on Deadline Day after being stripped of the captaincy in December following a disciplinary breach.

Speaking at his unveiling at the Nou Camp, the Gabon international said: “I think it was a problem just with him [Arteta]. I can’t really tell you much. He wasn’t happy and that was it.”

When asked about those comments ahead of Thursday’s trip to Wolves, Arteta said: “It’s his opinion. That’s his opinion, that is what he said and you have to respect that.

“I am grateful for what Auba has done at the club and his contribution since I have been here. The way I see myself in that relationship is the solution, not the problem.

“What I am saying is that I’ve been this solution, 100 per cent, I can look in the eye of anybody.

“I do lot of things wrong, for sure. But the intention all the time is the best – and not for me, it is for the club and for the team.”
