Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s reward for scoring in today’s the 2-0 win over Manchester United at the Emirates this afternoon was being interviewed by Jamie Redknapp.
The striker was asked to talk the former footballer and trainee pundit through scoring his penalty and his thought-process, and he revealed some insight into his technique – which is basically to wait for the keeper to move.
“I was confident, my teammates gave me a lot of confidence, as you can see Laca gave me the penalty, and that was cool from him,” said Aubameyang.
“I was really focused. I did a mistake against Tottenham, I looked down at the last moment so I didn’t watch Lloris, and I missed it. Today I watched de Gea, and being focused you score a penalty.
“We have to practice this all the time, today it went in.”
As for whether it crossed his mind not to take it, he continued, “No, I knew it would be tough but as I said before I was really confident.
“What I want to say is that the spirit of the team is really great, and that’s why I’m feeling good today.
“I think we have everything in our hands, we know it will be tough to finish in the top four, but we’re confident, we did well this week and it was important to win this game today and we had chances.
“We are hungry, we want to come back into the Champions League, and we’re all focused on doing that.”
