Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has got a letter from former Arsenal player Piers Morgan. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has confessed that his departure from the club has been beneficial to everyone. The striker has maintained his impressive start with FC Barcelona.
A sad departure from the Emirates Stadium occurred in January. The Gunners decided to terminate the club captain’s contract early as a result of a series of disciplinary concerns. This enabled him to join Barcelona on a free transfer from the Emirates Stadium.
If you assumed that removing the club’s major source of regular goals would hurt Mikel Arteta’s squad, you would be correct. However, the polar opposite has been the case. The youthful Arsenal team has been soaring to new heights since Aubameyang’s departure.
Furthermore, the striker has adapted well to his new surroundings in Spain. It was evident in his six goals in nine games for Barcelona. They won 4-0 at the hands of Osasuna on Sunday.
Barcelona’s great and current head coach Xavi has characterised Aubameyang as a ‘gift from heaven’. The striker is finding his scoring boots now that he’s in a more positive environment.
What Piers Morgan said:
And his most recent goal for LaLiga side Barca prompted Morgan to express his admiration for the former Arsenal star on social media.
“Arsenal supporters have spent the last two hours boasting about how much better we are as a team without Aubameyang. They’re overjoyed he’s gone,” he tweeted after the club’s 2-0 victory against Leicester City. Arsenal returned to the top four of the Premier League.
“In the meantime, he has scored six goals in nine appearances for Barcelona. He has scored five goals in six LaLiga games. I really miss you, Auba,” he said.
Arsenal fan even received a response from the guy himself. He stated he looks back on his time in north London with love despite how he left. Aubameyang conceded that his decision to leave was beneficial to everyone involved.
What Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang said:
“Thank you, Piers, but sometimes a break is beneficial to everyone. What’s most important is that everyone is happy right now. We had some very amazing experiences that I will never forget,” Aubameyang said.
Meanwhile, Barca manager Xavi has heaped praise on the striker after he netted his fifth goal in Laliga. They managed to progress to the third position in the Laliga standings.
In addition to a brace from former Manchester City striker Ferran Torres, Aubameyang scored the third goal to reduce the distance between Barcelona and second-placed Sevilla to five points with a game in hand.
With the win, Barcelona has now scored four goals in their last nine matches. Xavi’s side has put behind them the attacking difficulties they experienced before January. Winter signings Aubameyang, Torres, and ex-Wolves man Adama Traore all contributing to the transformation of their attack under the guidance of Xavi.
According to Xavi, “Aubameyang is a gift that has dropped from the sky. Not only [are the objectives] important, but so is the way he trains and his professionalism. He’s an example, as are [all of the players].”
