Former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has revealed what has never been told about the exit of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Arsenal after the striker fell out with Mikel Arteta

According to Benitez, Arteta did everything he could to help Aubameyang before the striker left Arsenal.

 

Earlier this month a video surfaced of Aubameyang criticising Arteta’s management at Arsenal, saying the Spaniard did not know how to handle ‘big players’.

But Benitez insists Arteta attempted to ‘support’ Aubameyang before eventually deciding that the 33-year-old had no future at the club.

Speaking about Arteta’s fall-out with Aubameyang, Benitez told Premier League Productions: ‘I will tell you something because I know a little bit from the inside.

‘He was trying to support the player as much as he could and after he couldn’t and that’s it. And he has to make a decision.’

 

Benitez also praised Arteta for improving Arsenal’s playing style and believes the World Cup break could improve the Gunners’ chances of competing for the Premier League title.

‘I think they’re doing well, analysing the game, not just watching the game, analysing the games, they are doing a lot of things right,’ Benitez said after Arsenal’s 1-0 win over Leeds United on Sunday.

‘They press high, they have the possession, they move the ball very quickly, they have light players, very dynamic up front, as soon as they give the ball away they press and regain the ball quickly. They have good players in one-versus-one situations, they play wall passes, a lot of good things, the defenders are very high.’
