FC Barcelona continues its presentations! After Adama Traoré yesterday, it was Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s turn to face journalists today as a new FC Barcelona player. If he dreams in particular of winning the Champions League and La Liga with the Blaugranas, he also indulged in other confessions such as the very complicated end of his adventure at Arsenal. Words reported by the Barça Universal account.
On Arsenal and Arteta
“The last few months at Arsenal have been complicated, I never wanted to do anything wrong, it’s the past and I’m thinking about the present. It was his (Arteta) decision (to step aside). He wasn’t happy, I can’t tell you more, but I was very calm with the situation.”
On his signature
“Last day of the transfer window? It was a very long day. It was crazy. We signed 2 minutes from the end of the transfer window. A bit of stress but I was very happy”.
On his adaptation
“Every player who comes here has to adapt. Barcelona have a lot of quality, they play beautiful football, I think I have to get used to the style, but I’ll get there”.
On his promise to his grandfather that he will play for Real Madrid
“Real Madrid? When you were little, your family told you things and you followed them. I think my grandfather will be happy to see me here as a Barca player.”
“Dembélé is training very well and I hope he and the club will find a solution.”
On Xavi’s expectations
“I spoke with Xavi, he sees me playing as a number 9 and I’m ready to play in this position, I can also play on the wing if he needs it. I’m a fast player, when I I’m in front of goal I have no mercy”.
Freshly presented as a new FC Barcelona player, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang indulged in a few confessions. In particular on the end of his adventure at Arsenal, his attraction to Real Madrid or even the Dembélé case.
