Aubameyang urges Arsenal to “keep fighting” following Southampton draw.
Arsenal needed a last gasp goal from Alexandre Lacazette to help them get a point in a 2-2 draw against Southampton, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has urged his fellow players to keep fighting until it gets better.
The Gunners had been without a win in 5 league games and their fans were desperately hoping that they would get back to winning ways against the underperforming Saints, however, that wasn’t the case as Unai Emery’s men once again frustrated their fans.
Aubameyang spoke with the club’s media after the game and insisted that the team has the quality to perform better than they are doing right now.
When asked what he thought about fans booing the players off the pitch after the match, he said per Arsenal.com:
“I don’t know [if the criticism is fair at the moment], but the team is disappointed like the fans are as well.
‘When we are playing, we are the first to be disappointed when it doesn’t work. We will try to keep fighting.
‘I think we have the quality to come back and we have to fight.”
Aubameyang has to send out a positive message about fighting and about how disappointed the players but his performance was one of the worse on the pitch.
The manager deserves immense criticism but so do the players, they have badly let us, the fans, down today.
The Gunners welcome Eintracht Frankfurt to the Emirates on Thursday and fans will be hoping that they can secure a morale-boosting win before they travel to Norwich next Sunday.
