Aubameyang’s father casts doubt on Arsenal future with Instagram post

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang‘s future has been cast into further doubt following his father’s latest comments on Instagram, leaving Arsenal fans in fear of the worst.

The Gabon international striker has been in amazing form once again this season, scoring 22 Premier League goals despite the teams struggles throughout the term.

With only a year remaining on his contract, his future has been a talking point for much of the campaign, but recent reports had hinted that a new contract could well be in the making, but with nothing signed, worries remain.

Aubameyang’s father has now added weight to the cloud of doubt surrounding his future at Arsenal, stating “We must make the right decision for the rest of your career.”

‘My son, who wouldn’t be proud to have a son like you. Bravo, bravo, bravo,’ Aubameyang Sr posted on Instagram above (English translation via the Metro).

‘You really are a scorer. Every season you respond with your efficiency, last season 22 goals, this season 22 goals. I can only congratulate you and tell you once again my pride.

‘We must make the right decision for the rest of your career.

‘They speaks a lot in the press, they do not know that we are Bantu and that there is a hierarchy the decision is taken after the advice of the wise man who is your father.

‘We will be set very soon, sleep peacefully my son, your father watches the grain. I love you.’

This is certainly not the type of distraction we would have been wanting ahead of the crucial FA Cup final next weekend, and winning the tie to earn Europa League football could well prove to aid our bid to keep our star striker.

Does Aubameyang’s father sound like he is pushing his son to leave Arsenal this summer?

  1. Although I like the player very much, however if he puts football first and is interested of winning something in Europe, Arsenal is not the club for the next 2-3 years or more. There were times when some mocked at ManU this season, they got their missing link in Bruno and away they move to the third spot.We do not target our short fall but seem interested in either cast offs or agents dumping deadwood in most cases.
    We needed a striker, Arsene got us Ozil.
    We needed a CDM, Kante was available, we got Xhaka.
    We passed on the opportunity to re sign Fabregas.
    We wanted defense, we got Mkhitaryan.
    There is no chance that we will get the right players, Kai and Minola might have their way and dump some more deadwood and further we slip down the table.
    It is left for Auba to decide and I feel he is waiting for Barca to call and off he moves, else he stays on a much deserved salary inflation.I would not blame him either for moving or requesting a decent salary.

    1. How correct you are! People complain we don’t spend when actually we are! The problem is as you have correctly stated, we spend on wrong players.

      Did we need Pepe last season? And for 72 million at that?

  2. Auba is really a great cat who could have left 2 seasons ago but accepted to play with CL hopes.

    Anyone of us would wish him the best and watch his game in another team supportive wishing him to win somzthing for 3 years he has left at top level.

    Not stay with an assistant coach in devellopment in a club with great past but no present nor futur ambition.

    He will stay under 2 conditions:
    1) At least play EL.
    2) He already stated it and warned board as his dad did; if team is not built to compete; guarranties to secure top players; he wont stay.

    I simply wont even watch games anymore; as watford, useless, it is not Arsenal world loved at all anymore.

    1. True fans stick with the club they love, through thick and thin we stay united and give the team the support they need thrive

      1. What more support do they need? Someone please write an article do educate some people that accepting mediocrity is not a sign of true fan. Weren’t we true fans we would have gone to support Man city but here we are!

  3. We only scored 56 league goals this season… our lowest since 95/96… imagine where we’d have been without Auba’s goals?!!
    Reading what his Dad had to say concerns me…..
    This window is going to be massive for us, I just hope we get it right and plan our ascent…..

    1. That part he talks about the future if he does not mean financially, then the great Pierre is as good as gone!

  4. I’ve been an Auba fan going back to when he was a young player at Dortmund. I can remember wishing he would play for Arsenal and then it happened. He is a natural athlete who rarely gets injured and a credit to any club he has played for, I love watching him play. At this stage in his career he has a big decision to make, will even qualifying for the EL be enough for him? Should he decide not to renew his contract I would imagine he would want to move on now, rather than run his contract down, as time is not on his side. It’s a conundrum for the board, if he goes who is going to replace him and if he stays what is it going to cost? We’ve been there before a couple or so years ago!!!

  5. To me, this is taking on the same scenario we had with RVP.
    Our club obviously want him to stay.
    They have offered him a contract.
    He is stalling, waiting to see what offers will come along.
    He will profess his love for the club, while keeping the manager dangling on a piece of string over his decision.
    He is earning a reported £180,000 a week, with a reported increase of £100,000 a week on the table and accompanied with a three year deal.

    Just make your decision, let MA plan either way and the club will continue, whatever happens.
    Mikel deserves more than this pantomine – So sign or sell – thanks for all you will/have do/done for The Arsenal and I personally hope you stay.

    1. Agree that this needs to be sorted out asap. Dithering like Wenger did with Sanchez cost the team dearly.

  6. I would support him either way!

    If he leaves it will be the fault of the club. As it was with all the other great players who left when they realised the club was unable to move forward. Arsenal have proved every season they are not growing or getting better. In fact, European football has been under risk for years at Arsenal. We have scrapped in to Europe and we may miss out this season? The CL is where the best want to be and I won’t be surprised if we will see Auba in the CL next season!

    He is too good not to be!

  7. For £250000 he wants, Let him go, and bring on Joelson Fernandes and Odsonne Édouard, a scorer, an assist, good header just like Oliver Giroud.
    Before him there were the likes of Van persie, and Henry, and we moved on.
    We need a CM, wingers and attacking middle fielders who are consistent goal scores and not depend on the sticker alone, this is the problem we have.
