Since Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang arrived at the Emirates, he has formed a deep connection with their fanbase – and he says that was crucial in his decision to sign a new contract.
The forward was astonished with the way the fans showed him love and respected him. He feels happy to be among them.
Aubameyang Saïd : “The fans are everything you know, they are everything,” Auba told Ian Wright in an exclusive interview at Emirates Stadium.
“They are waiting for you [outside the ground], of course they can sometimes be angry about you but this is football you know. This is why I respect them, and play for them.
“I used to be a supporter as well when I was young, so I know the feeling when your team wins, and when your team loses, so I understand them and this is why I stay here – because I love them.
“The love they’ve showed me since I arrived here, I’m like, ‘Wow!’ Every day I get a lot of messages, and when I go out from the stadium, even when we lose sometimes I stop and I have to say sorry!”
The Arsenal forward has just extended his contract with the North London club for another three years.
