The day after he was officially introduced as a Barcelona footballer and registered for the knockout phase of the UEFA Europa League, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang shared his first impressions of coming to the new club. Until the age of 32, he played for Monaco, Lille, Dijon, Saint-Etienne, Borussia Dortmund, and Arsenal, but there is no doubt that the Catalan giant is the most powerful reference in a rich footballer CV ...
Regardless of the serious results and financial problems they face "I've always dreamed of playing in the Spanish league. This is a great opportunity, an opportunity of my life. Of course, I hope to stay here for a long time."
"I haven't played football for a long time, but it's very clear in my head that I came to play and help I know we will return to the top step by step," the Gabonese began his speech at the press conference.
Until recently, he had the epithet of the highest-paid Arsenal player (around 14,000,000 euros per year net), but a well-known wrong move with leaving the country the day before the game, angered Michel Arteta, who then completely neglected him by excluding him from the match protocol.
"It was a complicated month, but I think sometimes football is just like that. For my part, I never wanted to do something wrong. It's the past now, and I want to think about the present," the popular Auaba said.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang last minutes
Years ago, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was a wish of Barcelona, and until midnight on the last day of the winter transfer window, it was not certain that he would sign for the Catalans.
However, the sports director of Barça, Mateu Alemanni, managed to cope with a complicated operation. "It was a very long day and crazy too. We signed two minutes before the transfer deadline closed. I was at my father's house and hoped everything would go well."
"I was finally invited in the afternoon to have medical testings and I was overjoyed. A little stress in the end, but it ended well." The current reality of Barcelona is the fight for the Top 16 of the Europa League and until the end of the season, a serious fight for the positions that lead to the Champions League.
"Barça is a great club that has to win the Champions League. It is an opportunity for me to do it here. We will do everything to return to the Champions League and win it," Aubameyang concluded.
