Former Arsenal striker has admitted he is still watching Arsenal matches despite the bitter end at Emirates club.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang insists he isn’t forgetting about his former teammates, and he at the weekend watched Arsenal defeat Brentford.
At the weekend, the former Arsenal striker got his new team, Barcelona club, off to a good start in terms of goalscoring.
Aubameyang scored his first, second, and third goals in his fourth outing for Barcelona, completing a hat-trick.
The striker had a field day, as a shot deflected off his back and into the net for the third goal. But it continues his great trend at the Mestalla, where he also scored a hat-trick for Arsenal.
Aubameyang says he hasn’t forgotten about his previous club or his old teammates after a good weekend with his new one.
“I have many friends in my previous teams, I don’t forget them,” Aubameyang said. “Whenever I can, I watch their games, for example, Arsenal beat Brentford 2-1 on Saturday.”
Aubameyang looked to get along well with Arsenal’s younger players, so he would have been thrilled to see Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe score, as well as his good friend Alexandre Lacazette provide an assist, in the win.
The aim is that Aubameyang’s transfer will be beneficial to all parties involved.
Aubameyang has already returned to scoring form, which advantages Barcelona, while Arsenal has been able to put the crisis behind them and resume winning form.
Arsenal won’t have to worry about finding a new striker in the summer because all of this season’s center-forwards will most likely be gone.
The only question is whether the Emirates club can continue to do without Aubameyang’s goals in the meantime.
