Sven Mislintat has been singing the praises of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, claiming the Arsenal striker is one of the best professionals around.
Our top scorer and the recent winner of the Premier League’s Player of the Month award, Aubameyang has been Arsenal’s star performer so far this season. The striker has eight goals in 10 games, and almost all of them have been decisive.
For instance, Newcastle, Burnley and Aston Villa goals were all winners, the Spurs and United goals were equalisers, and the two goals against Watford gave Arsenal a 2-0 lead a big advantage as Watford fought to earn a point in the second half.
There have been serious doubt over Auba’s attitude off the pitch due to controversies around his transfer to the Emirate from Dortmund.
Sven Mislintat nonetheless affirmably rubbished such criticism and claimed the Player as the best professional he has ever worked with.
This was what Sven had to say about the player
“In the dressing room, it is a completely different story,” Mislintat claimed (via The Athletic ). “He is not arrogant or extroverted. For me, without any doubt, he is one of the best professionals I ever worked with.
“He is a hard worker, a great athlete. He is always smiling. He takes care of the young lads. He is a quiet leader but he really is a leader. He is funny. There is sunshine if he is around.
“If you are able to read and see Auba’s quality and personality, you get everything out of him and your club will win more games.”
Sven Mislintant also discussed Auba care for others and the team. This come in the light of Aubameyang giving penalty kick to Nicholas Pepe, he has done the same to Laccazette in the past. This has strengthen partnership upfront for Arsenal.
“He is one, possibly the only one, of these extraordinary top, top, top strikers who is an absolute team player,” Mislintat continued . “A striker like Neymar or (Sergio) Aguero, for example, would never give a penalty to Pepe to score his first goal.
“It’s vice versa — ‘Come on, I will take this penalty kick, nobody else!’ Auba gave the chance to Pepe. His instinct was, ‘Let’s score and let’s go forward together.’ He takes care about his team-mates.”
Aubameyang from the day he came through the doors of Emirate has become absolutely fan favorite and motivation to our squad.
