EPL: Arteta speaks on Aubameyang’s possible move to Chelsea
Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has said he hopes Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gets a good reception from Gunners fans if he joins Chelsea.
Arteta also defended removing Aubameyang as Arsenal captain last season.
The Amazon All or Nothing documentary showed the behind-the-scenes footage of Aubameyang being removed as Arsenal captain due to disciplinary issues.
The documentary release comes at the same time as Chelsea’s interest in Aubameyang – and Arteta has hailed the Gabon forward’s impact on the club,
“It’s a long time since that happened, I can’t go back when there’s another series,” Arteta said of the Aubameyang captaincy saga. “I was clear and honest in my opinion. What has been done is to defend our club and be as clear, honest as we can.”
“Auba is an exceptional player, he did so much for us and we have to be grateful for what he did for this club.
“I hope he does [get a good reception from Arsenal fans] because he deserve that. There are moments in your career, where the trajectory of the individual is different to the club.”
