Barcelona forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has told Piers Morgan that “sometimes everyone benefits from a separation” following his Arsenal departure. The Gabon international severed his ties with the Gunners in January to move to Spain.
Aubameyang was once the darling of Arsenal after enjoying a prolific run of form during his first two-and-a-half years in north London.
After signing from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018, the ace bagged 10 Premier League goals during the second half of the 2017/18 campaign.
He backed that up with 31 strikes in all competitions during his first full season at the club, before notching another 29 the following campaign.
Aubameyang struck some important goals during his time at the Emirates Stadium and his brace against Chelsea in the 2020 FA Cup final ensured Mikel Arteta’s side lifted the trophy.
The 32-year-old was handed a new mega-money deal following his endeavours during the 2019/20 season but suffered a downturn in form soon afterwards.
And he’s been making waves in Spain ever since as he’s found the back of the net six times in nine matches.
On Sunday he netted his side’s third goal as they thrashed Osasuna 4-0 in La Liga, just hours after Arsenal had beaten Leicester City in the Premier League.
And former Good Morning Britain host Morgan then revealed he missed the star.
“Arsenal fans have spent the past 2hrs gloating about why we’re so much better without Aubameyang & they’re so glad he’s gone,” Morgan wrote on Twitter.
