Mislintat: Arsenal striker Aubameyang too selfless to play for elite club

Stuttgart chief Sven Mislintat says Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is too selfless to play for an elite club.

Aubameyang has been linked with Real Madrid and Barcelona throughout his career.

But former Gunners scout Mislintat, who signed the striker from Borussia Dortmund, was quoted by The Athletic saying: "He is one, maybe the only one, this exceptional top striker, who is an absolute team player.

"Perhaps this attitude cost him the opportunity to play for clubs like Real Madrid or Barcelona.

"A striker like Neymar or (Sergio) Aguero, for example, would never give up a penalty. I like his attitude. He is good for the team atmosphere."
