Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s confirmation that he’d be signing a new contract with Arsenal Football Club is about as close as you can get to a current player feeling like a new signing. He’s said that he wants to try and become a legend at the Emirates, and based on recent evidence, we’d say that’s true.
The Gabon international spoke with Gunners legend Ian Wright shortly after confirming that he’d be staying in North London.
“The fans are everything you know, they are everything,” Auba told Ian Wright.
“They are waiting for you [outside the ground], of course they can sometimes be angry about you but this is football you know. This is why I respect them, and play for them.
“I used to be a supporter as well when I was young, so I know the feeling when your team wins, and when your team loses, so I understand them and this is why I stay here – because I love them.
“The love they’ve showed me since I arrived here, I’m like, ‘Wow!’ Every day I get a lot of messages, and when I go out from the stadium, even when we lose sometimes I stop and I have to say sorry!”
It’s great to have this kind of ambassador representing Arsenal, and as we look ahead to the club’s immediate future, it does feel like something special is brewing under the guidance of Mikel Arteta.
