- Former Arsenal striker and captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has launched a no-holds-barred attack on his former manager Mikel Arteta
- Aubameyang and Arteta fell out towards the end of last year, with the former leaving the club for Barcelona
- The striker is back in the Premier League with Chelsea after Barcelona signed Robert Lewandowski
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has - for the first time - opened up on what transpired between him and his former manager at Arsenal, Mikel Arteta.
Aubameyang fell out with Arteta in a rather weird fashion, forcing the striker to move away from the club in January.
Arteta had frozen Aubameyang out of his side in what was termed as indiscipline issues. Barcelona ended up signing the striker, where he flourished for six months.
However, after the Catalan giants signed Robert Lewandowski, the Gabonese international made headway back to London, this time with Chelsea.

Metro UK now reports that Aubameyang has claimed that Arteta does not know how to handle big players.
"Arteta cannot manage big characters or big players. He needs some young players, they don’t say anything; they listen."
Arteta's Arsenal is currently one of the youngest sides ever in the Premier League. The likes of Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli and Martin Odegaard are spearheading Arsenal's unprecedented challenge for the top premiership title.
Aubameyang looks settled into the Chelsea team already under Graham Potter. He has scored two goals in four appearances.
Arsenal has since replaced Aubameyang with Gabriel Jesus.
Gabriel Jesus highlights major difference between Manchester City and Arsenal fans
Sports Brief had earlier reported that striker Gabriel Jesus had opened up on the difference between Arsenal fans and Manchester City fans in a telling interview.
Jesus is already a crowd favourite at the Emirates after securing a famous move from the Premier League champions in the summer.
He has hit the ground running at the Emirates, scoring five goals in his first eight Premier League appearances while also getting a couple of assists.
