I Have Been Struggling A Lot This Season – Arsenal Star Aubameyang

by Joshua Ologunde

Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang admits that he has been “struggling a lot” to replicate his best form this season, but feels that he has the tools and the attitude to turn things around as the Gunners look to climb the Premier League table after a poor start to the 2020-21 campaign.

The Gabon international had been Arsenal’s go-to man for goals since joining from Borussia Dortmund in 2018, proving prolific enough for the club to hand him the skipper’s armband and a long-term deal as the north London side seek to usher in a new age of success.

Aubameyang has failed to live up to his own high standards this term, however – by his own admission – but has promised fans that he continues to give his all for the cause and believes he has what it takes to re-establish himself as Mikel Arteta’s top striker.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the 31-year-old said:

“From the beginning of this season I was struggling a lot but I think this is part of football.

“We gave a lot at the end of the season to win the FA Cup and to qualify for the Europa League because it was really important for the club.

“Sometimes you have ups and downs and you have to manage as best you can. I tried my best and until now it was not the best performance from me.

“I’m still positive. I think I can turn this around.”
