Arsenal must be ‘very grateful’ to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as Mikel Arteta discusses ‘exceptional’ striker fallout and Chelsea transfer links

Mikel Arteta has hailed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as “outstanding” and believes Arsenal fans should be grateful for what he has done for the club.

The Gabon international was at the center of a huge fallout at the Emirates Stadium when a number of disciplinary issues led to the striker being stripped as captain and ultimately leaving the club.

Now with Barcelona, ​​Aubameyang’s story is making headlines in the footballing world after behind-the-scenes events were published on Amazon Prime’s All Or Nothing: Arsenal series.

As well as his demise at Arsenal, the 33-year-old is also making pages this summer with Chelsea heavily linked with a potential move for the striker.

However, when asked about his former player, Arteta only had positive things to say.

Speaking about the striker’s situation, Arteta said: “It hasn’t happened for a long time. I can’t go back every time there is another series. I have done my comments on it.

“I have been really clear and honest with my opinion and what has been done has only been done to defend our club and put the club in the best possible position while being as clear, as honest and as consistent as possible. .”

Arteta added: “Auba is an exceptional player. He did so much for us – he was our captain and we have to be very grateful for what he did for this club.

If Aubameyang moves to Chelsea there is a risk he will face an unsavory reception from Arsenal fans when the two London rivals face off, but according to Arteta the striker deserves a positive reception, saying “I hope he does because I think he deserves it.

“There are times in life and there are times in your career – sometimes each individual’s trajectory and goals are different from those of the club. We have to respect that.
