Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's Brother Slams Arsenal For Mikel Arteta Interest

Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang's brother has slammed Arsenal for lining up Mikel Arteta as their new manager claiming he has no experience.

Arteta is expected to leave his role as assistant coach at Manchester City to take over at the Emirates Stadium.

But the Arsenal captain's brother, Willy Aubameyang, has expressed his doubts over the Spaniard taking over.

Replying to a post on Instagram from AFTV that explained Arteta was expected to become the club's next manager, Willy replied: 'Ljungberg Arteta is the same , no experience'.

The 32-year-old is often behind the scenes at Arsenal and is quite friendly with some of the clubs legends.

His comments likely won't go down well with the Arsenal hierarchy considering he not only criticises Arteta, but also current caretaker boss Freddie Ljungberg.

Regardless of who is in charge, Aubameyang is likely to be a crucial part of any manager's plans.

The 30-year-old has scored 11 goals this season and has carried 'the Gunners' at times during a turbulent season.

Meanwhile, club legend Ljungberg has only won one of his five games while in charge and has urged the club to make an appointment soon.

Speaking after their 3-0 defeat to Manchester City on Sunday, the Swede told The Guardian:

"I've said to them [the club] they need to make a decision. We are here to help and the staff are trying to chip in but a decision has to be made so we can have the same resources as other clubs.

"Per [Mertesacker] is an academy manager and he is doing two jobs in one go. It needs to be cleared up, to make a decision, so everybody knows.

"That's something I've said. But then it's totally up to the club. I'm very honoured and I try to do things as good as I can but it would be good to make a decision - regardless of what it is."

Arsenal are currently languishing in 10th place and seven points outside the top four.

They sacked Unai Emery at the end of November and their rotten form has continued.

Saturday's game sees them take on Everton and it's hoped Arteta can take charge for that game.
