Arsenal’s most expensive signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang only arrived in January and has proven to be worth every penny as he has contributed to an average of one goal for every single game he has played in since his arrival and has quickly cemented a great understanding with his new team-mates.
Although the Gunners have ended the season trophyless and are currently without a manager, the Gabon hitman is convinced that the team will improve next season. After scoring the winning goal against Everton at the weekend Aubameyang told Arsenal.com how happy he was to have made Wenger’s last game a winning one. “It was important for us because it was the boss’ last game and it was important to win this game for him,” Aubameyang said. “It was special to score the goal and I’m very, very happy.
“I’ve learnt a lot in not a lot of time working with him, but I really did learn a lot. I’m so happy to be here. I thought he’d be here for years. Of course it was a shock, but this is football. Sometimes you never know, but I was happy to play for him.
“At the beginning it was really hard because I don’t think I was ready physically. I didn’t play in January all month, so it was not easy. After a lot of work with the staff I found my form again and then scored some goals thanks to my team-mates.
“These last few weeks we’ve played well and we have a lot of young players. It’s good for the future and I’m sure that next season will be a good one for us.”
With Lacazette also coming back amongst the goals lately and Henrik Mhkitaryan regaining fitness, the Gunners will surely have a lethal strike force next season and we should be seeing an abundance of goals under the new manager. We just need the new man to sort out our defence and should surely get a lot closer to the top of the table in the next campaign, even without any new arrivals.
Onwards and Upwards!
