Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang wants to take after Dennis Bergkamp and Thiery Henry, the Arsenal Legends. The twenty nine year old had been handed over the number 14 shirt of Henry when he came back from Borussia Dortmund with a record amount of £56million. He has made a great start to his time in Gunner by scoring 18 goals in twenty three Premier League games.
Aubameyang sat out in the Europa League on Thursday where they won over Vorskla Poltava. However, he is going to come back to the start line-up against Tottenham in London derby. Ahead of this game, he has enumerated his responsibility to live up to few legendary players in the history of Arsenal.
He says that it feels as he is coming back to play and has amazing examples like Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry. He takes it as a great opportunity to try and follow this. He says that the players want to follow their footsteps but that isn’t easy. This is not a pressure but it is necessary to be good in game and thus, working for it becomes essential. Aubameyang wants to play as a striker but he is someone who wants to put in his hard work for the team, too. In case the team needs him on the wing, he is going to play on the wing. However, upfront game is what he prefers.
Aubameyang might get an opportunity to play in middle in case Alexandre Lacazette doesn’t recover from his injury.
