Former Crystal Palace manager, Neil Warnock, has compared Chelsea striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s current situation to what happened to Cristiano Ronaldo during his time at Manchester United.
Warnock also urged Chelsea manager, Graham Potter, to deal with Aubameyang’s situation at Chelsea immediately before it gets out of hand, adding that the former Arsenal captain ‘will never change.’
Aubameyang has endured a miserable spell at Chelsea since joining the west London club from Barcelona last summer, scoring just three goals in 15 matches.
The Gabonese has failed to score for Chelsea in their last nine games and came on as an early substitute in their Premier League 1-0 defeat to Manchester City on Thursday but was then substituted in the second half.
However, Warnock believes Chelsea would be ‘better off without’ the 33-year-old, comparing him to Ronaldo, who was released by Manchester United last November.
“You get players like that and you are better off without them,” Warnock told talkSPORT when asked about Aubameyang’s situation at Chelsea.
“Chelsea are short of strikers, but people like him [Aubameyang] are after themselves really, they look after themselves as players and they will throw the manager under the bus rather than take any blame.
“So I think Graham Potter has to deal with it. It is similar to what happened with Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United.

“I said United should let him go in pre-season and that was no disrespect to Ronaldo. Leopards don’t change their spots.
“I don’t think Aubameyang will ever change. You know, from Arsenal to Chelsea, now he looks the same type of player. On his day, as good as you will see, but his days are few and far between.”
