Aubameyang Extends Arsenal Stay


Arsenal skipper, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang has extended his stay at the Emirates Stadium, putting an end to uncertainty surrounding his future.

The Gunners talisman signed a three year contract to remain with the North London side.

The Gabon international’s previous deal had been set to expire in the summer of 2021 and he had been locked in talks over a renewal for several months.

“Arsenal fans! Finally! As you know, I’ve just signed da ting,” Aubameyang said in a live stream from the Emirates. “I wanted to share it with you guys and I’m so happy – a bit nervous! It’s finally done. I’m really, really happy to stay here, I mean, this is my home.

“I feel so good here, it’s a great day and I hope you enjoy your day. I signed da ting because I want to become an Arsenal legend and to maybe leave a legacy. It’s time to work a lot to become a legend, I know, but I will give my best as always.

“I can’t wait to see you in this beautiful stadium again. Hopefully it’s going to be soon. I’m really happy to be staying here and really proud to be part of this family,” he added.

Reacting, Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta described Aubameyang as a superb player with an incredible mentality.

He said it is important for the forward to stay with the club.

“Being the player to have taken the least amount of time to reach 50 goals with this club tells you everything you need to know about him and his way of working.

“He’s an important leader for the team and a big part of what we’re building. He wants to be up there with the best players in the world and leave his mark. He can achieve that here,” he said.
