Lacazette reveals why he was frustrated under Wenger
Arsenal striker, Alexandre Lacazette, has revealed why he was left frustrated under Arsene Wenger, also speaking on the differences between Wenger and Unai Emery.
The Frenchman was brought in last summer by Wenger, but struggled during his debut season at the club.
Lack of form and injury led to the Gunners recruiting Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in January, further hampering the striker’s game time.
But the 27-year-old has enjoyed a positive start to this season, scoring five goals and producing three assists in 12 appearances.
Lacazette revealed that he was left frustrated, by finding himself regularly substituted by Wenger last season.
“Yes I was [disappointed] last season I knew I had to score in one hour,” he added. “When I talked with the coach, he has to make some choices which I have to respect.
“When you’re a striker you want to play all the games and most chances come at the end because defenders are tired.
“That’s why I was frustrated but it was my first season and all my family said “don’t be like this, enjoy the club”. Now I feel I can [stay on for the full 90 minutes].”
