Arsenal star and one of the only players to hit double figures in goals this season, has revealed that the club can survive without the brilliant Arsene Wenger.
The striker arrived this season to give the Gunners lethality and the punch that they sorely lacked last season up front and has done exactly that in the short time that he has been here. However, with Arsene Wenger announcing his departure and the club looking for a new manager, the Arsenal star believes that the North London side can survive without the legendary manager.
A mammoth presence at the club since his arrival in October of 1996, Arsene Wenger will go down in history as among the greatest Premier League managers and possibly the greatest Arsenal manager ever. However, with Arsenal struggling to fight for supremacy in recent times, the great Frenchman and the London giants have decided to part ways, with Arsene Wenger revealing that he will step down at the end of the current season.
However, Arsenal record signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has revealed that the Gunners have a brilliant chance to survive without their legendary manager. The 28-year-old had arrived from Dortmund during the winter transfer window and after more than two weeks of chasing their man, Arsenal has finally managed to bring in Pierre Emerick Aubameyang for a fee of £56 million, which makes the Gabon international their club record signing.
Since his move, the 28-year-old has continued his exceptional Bundesliga form into the Premier League, scoring 10 goals and providing a further 4 assists in just 14 games in the Premier League, adjusting brilliantly to the pace and the physicality of the English game. In an interview, Aubameyang went on to add “Of course (next season can be a success). These last weeks we played well and have a lot of young players coming through. It’s good for the future and I am sure next season will be a good season for us.”
“Yes, the news was a shock,” he further went on to say went asked about Arsene Wenger’s departure. “But this is the life, this is football and sometimes you never know what can happen. I was happy to play for him. I learned a lot in the few months. It was not a lot of time to work with him, but I learned a lot already.”
In Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the Gunners got a bonafide goalscorer who proved himself in the few Premier League appearances he made since the move. However, what Arsenal need now is to find the perfect balance between him and Alexandre Lacazette next season and hope that the two combine as well as they have this season.
