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?
