Arsenal have been urged to sell Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang due to his “laziness” and “disgusting” work ethic.
Second-half goals from Gabriel Martinelli, Nicolas Pepe and Aubameyang ensured an abysmal opening 45 minutes was a distant memory at full time with the Gunners moving up to ninth with the 3-1 victory.
Aubameyang now sits joint-second in the Premier League scoring charts with 11 goals, while he was recently appointed permanent captain following Granit Xhaka’s public falling out with the Emirates fans.
But Cascarino has launched an astonishing verbal attack on the former Borussia Dortmund star and says he should be sold along with Mesut Ozil.
“People talk about his goalscoring record – and it is very good – but he needs to be a team player. Last night he was just letting opposing defenders head the ball away without even making a challenge.
“Along with Mesut Ozil, he is the laziest player in the side. His work ethic for a senior player is bordering on disgusting.
“Last week against Brighton he remonstrated with Joe Willock, his young colleague, when he should be encouraging him.
“He would be the first one out of the club if it was up to me.”
The 3-1 success at London Stadium was Arsenal’s first in the Premier League since a win against Bournemouth at the beginning of October.
Arsenal now turn their attention to Thursday’s Europa League encounter at Standard Liege.
