Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang: Arteta hopes victory in FA Cup convinces club striker


Aubameyang’s brace sends Arsenal to FA Cup final

Mikel Arteta is hopeful that forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be “confident that we are going in the right direction” after Arsenal beat Manchester City to reserve their place in the FA Cup final.

Aubameyang’s current contract expires at the end of the 2020-21 season.

Earlier this month, Arteta said he hoped the Gabonese international “would be there for a long time”.

The striker scored both goals as Arsenal defeated City 2-0 at Wembley.

“I think everyone has good times and bad, the way he looks at things when I talk to him, he seems pretty convinced,” Arteta said.

“But if he can see the success and the direction we’re taking, it’s the right one, I think he will be more positive about it.” Big players are criticized when things don’t work. But he has shown today on the pitch – does not speak – what he can do. ”

Arsenal will face Chelsea or Manchester United in the FA Cup final on August 1.

Chris Sutton, former Premier League striker on BBC Radio 5 Live:

Will Arsenal be a better team if Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang stays? Of course, they will.

But as all of this continues, it seems like he’s already made up his mind.

Perhaps Aubameyang will see something in Arteta? And to win against Liverpool and now Manchester City? He must have enjoyed it today.

If he wants to win big trophies, will he do it at Arsenal next season? No he is not.
