Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gave an audition for a post-football career in diplomacy by saying he doesn’t know why results and performances are so bad at Arsenal right now, but says he and the team will fight to make things better.
The Arsenal skipper was denied a goal early in the second half by a fantastic save, but as the game progressed the Gunners were lucky to be still within touching distance for Alex Lacazette’s late goal to count for anything in the 2-2 draw with Southampton.
Auba was the one to front up to the media after the game, and when asked why he thought things weren’t clicking, he said, “I don’t know. Sincerely, I don’t know.
“I think everybody has to try to ask themselves that, and what they can change, what they can give more of. Everybody has to do this, me first.
“I will try to work hard and to get back to winning ways. The only thing I can say is that we as a team, as players, will try to continue our work.
“We have to find a solution together. I think we have to stay strong. We are men and we have to carry on our hard work.”
When questioned about whether boos at the end were fair, he continued, “I don’t know … but the team is disappointed like the fans are as well. When we are playing, we are the first to be disappointed when it doesn’t work.”.
