Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang spoke to Sky Sports after the 2-2 draw with Sp*rs at the Emirates this evening.
This is what he had to say (he really is a master of the post-match soundbite!). Read the report and see the goals here.
You were looking for three points, when you’re 2-0 down is a point a good result?
I think so. In the first half I thought we deserved to score two goals, but that’s not what happened. We are not happy. We did a great job. We played well. It was a tough game. I think we deserved more.
How much did you think you contributed to your own downfall? You could have done better for their goals.
Yeah. I think after those two goals, we started to be under pressure so we pushed a lot. Laca scored the first one, then in the second half, we had some chances. We scored the second one. I think we had the space to score the third one but as I said it was a tough game so it’s a draw tonight.
[Supremely impressive shirking of the question here]
Do you think the timing of Lacazette’s goal was crucial to give you something?
Of course. When you go in the dressing room with a goal it’s positive so everyone knows we have more power and we’ll come back stronger in the second half, so it was really crucial to come back.
Great finish for your goal, but how good was the pass from Guendouzi?
Great pass! He looked at me, and he knew I was going to run and the ball was perfect. I have to say the goal goes down to his pass.
Are you happier/more dangerous as the central striker?
As I always said I like to play striker but when the team needs me on the wing, I go and I try my best.
