Chelsea striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang drops explosive bomb on mishandling at his former club

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the captain of Gabon and current Chelsea striker, said that Arsenal’s treatment of him was not very professional after he spent years as their main striker at the Emirates Stadium.

This resulted in a heated atmosphere with the current Gunner boss, Mikel Arteta, who demoralized the striker with many provocative speeches during his last days in North London before leaving for FC Barcelona.

Why did Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang get furious at his former club?

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang admits that his exit from Arsenal to Barcelona on Deadline Day was in part due to his disagreements with manager Mikel Arteta as the Gabon striker spent precisely four years at North London and scored 92 goals in 163 games for the Gunners.

As a result of losing his leadership at the Emirates Stadium last year due to disciplinary issues, the striker made the move to Catalonia on final day of this year’s January transfer window but sustained there for only six months before joining Chelsea this summer.

However, Aubameyang’s heartache did not last long after joining for the Blues as he openly revealed that one of his former boss Christopher Galtier (present PSG manager), once inspired him to remain calm on disaster.

According to the Chelsea striker, Galtier boosted his morale when they were involved together at France with Saint Etienne before his grand introduction with German giant Borussia Dortmund in 2013.

The former Arsenal forward then said, “I’ve been through a lot of bad moments. I mean, not injury. At the beginning of my career, everyone was talking about me like a sprinter only. You know, this hurts sometimes because you know where you come from.”

Nonetheless, he smiled with his new teammate, Fofana, just after commenting the above, as he did not forget to praise Mr. Galtier, who actually built a strong foundation of decency inside him a long time ago.
