Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang criticised for "massive drop off" since signing new contract

Darren Bent believes Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang has had a massive drop off for his form since signing a new contract with Arsenal. The Gabonese forward committed to a new three-year contract at the Emirates last month. Since then, however, Aubameyang has not scored for the Gunners. Speaking on talkSPORT, Bent said he is just as worried about the player's performances. "It's not the fact he hasn't scored a goal, it's the performances," Bent said. "Before he signed his contract he was absolutely everywhere - running back, tracking back, putting tackles in, breaking forward. There was a real hunger and intensity to his game. "At the minute, you can see there's been a massive drop off. I don't know if it's coincided with the new contract, but you can tell that he's not playing with the same intensity that he had before. "When you focus so much on getting a new deal like Aubameyang did, you'll run that extra yard and make that extra effort. When he sits down now and analyses his performances before and after the contract he'll see that there's been a massive change."
