Mikel Arteta claims ‘several players’ were holding Arsenal back when discussing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s exit earlier this year.

Aubameyang spent just over a year under Arteta at Arsenal and during that time the team won the FA Cup.

The striker’s final months with the Gunners turned sour as Arteta stripped him of the captaincy following a several disciplinary issues.

Arsenal ended up terminating Aubameyang’s £350,000-a-week contract in February which paved the way for his move to Barcelona.

Arteta insists Aubameyang was not the only player he felt who was restricting Arsenal’s progression.

When asked about the decision to get rid of Aubameyang, Arteta told Sky Sports: ‘First of all I didn’t take that decision, we took that decision as a club.

‘Obviously there is my recommendation and what I feel that we need to do to get where we want.

‘But I wouldn’t like to single out one player.

‘At the end of the day, when you are in that process and you want to go faster there are people holding that boat [back] and putting weight on it.

‘I’m sorry but we want to go even faster and there’s no time, whether it’s a player or a staff member, for someone damaging the club and we made that decision.

Arteta also claims Arsenal are already ahead of his five-phase plan which he made when he was appointed in December 2019.

Asked if Arsenal are ahead of behind his current plan, Arteta smiled and replied: ‘We are ahead.’.
