Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has hit out at Arsenal supporters who criticised the players after they appeared to snub a matchday mascot before their draw with Norwich City on Sunday.

Gunners fans were angered after a video from Norwich’s Instagram stories showed Aubameyang, Shkodran Mustafi, Mesut Ozil, Alexandre Lacazette and Calum Chambers all walk past a young Arsenal mascot without acknowledging him at Carrow Road.

However, Chambers offered a response to the video by uploading several pictures of the mascot posing alongside several Arsenal players.

Chambers also made fans aware that the mascot was invited into their dressing room before the game.

‘The cameras sometimes only show one side of the story,’ Chambers posted.

‘It’s always great to meet our Junior Gunners mascot in the dressing room before every match.

‘We hope Billy had a great day at Norwich on Sunday and it was a pleasure to meet him.’

Aubameyang also followed up Chambers’ post to hit out at those who criticised Arsenal’s players over the video.

The striker wrote: ‘Thanks Calum. I wanted to sleep but i saw these bull***** then wanted to reply but you quicker than me so I go back to sleep a bit.’

Meanwhile Arsenal’s interim manager Freddie Ljungberg has responded to Paul Scholes after the former Manchester United midfielder criticised the Swede for not wearing a suit for the Gunners’ 2-2 draw with Norwich on Sunday.

‘I have seen the Premier League and seen coaches in a tracksuit, coaches with a suit, and I have seen coaches with a sweater, so I will decide on a match day what I will use,’ Ljungberg said.
