Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ‘sent back to London’ by Adel Taarabt

Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was destroyed by former Tottenham man Adel Taarabt’s skills on international duty.

The Gunners forward is the club’s top-scorer with eight goals in all competitions.

And he has spent the international break with Gabon, where their latest match was a 3-2 win against Morocco.

Aubameyang could not get on the scoreboard for his country, though.

And footage emerged of him being humiliated by former Spurs man Taarabt.

In the clip, the midfielder – who now plays at Benfica – is starting an attack from his own half.

But he quickly comes under pressure from Aubameyang.

The Gunners star lunges towards the ball – but Taarabt has other ideas.

He pulls it back before flicking the ball round the forward’s right leg.

The 30-year-old is left rooted to the spot while the former Spurs man runs into space.

This footage was shared on Twitter last night, where it has been viewed more than 115,000 times.

And rivals Gunners fans laid into the forward for his defensive error.

“Taarabt just sent Aubameyang back to London,” one said.

Another commented: “Taarabt burned him.”

While a third suggested the Moroccan should be rewarded for his skills.

“Taarabt for Ballon D’Or,” they said.

And a fourth added: “He burned Aubameyang.”

Fans also want their ground renamed the “Arsene Wenger Stadium” after the former boss’ Real Madrid snub.

Aubameyang is expected to be part of the side to face Sheffield United on Monday.
