Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has become the 657th Arsenal player to praise the positive influence of new coach Mikel Arteta.
It’s not the first time the club captain has touched on the fact he and his teammates are feeling better about life since Unai ‘it’s not my fault’ Emery departed in December.
“He’s doing very well. We are improving every day. We’re feeling much better than the beginning of the season.”
The Gabon international was speaking from Dubai where the lads have been training and playing hard (with camels) in the Winterlull sunshine.
“The trip is a good one for the spirit of the team. We’re feeling well and have great facilities. We try to improve every day.”
Aubameyang was also asked whether he fancied his chances of topping the Premier League’s scoring charts again this season. The striker shared the award with Liverpool duo Mo Salah and Sadio Mane last May and thinks he could do it again.
“Yes. Why not?” he said, “first of all I always say the most important is the team and our targets.
“Then if I can be top scorer it’s cool For the moment we try to get some wins and that’s the most important.”
Auba currently has 14 goals in the league to his name, three behind leader Jamie Vardy and two adrift of Sergio Aguero.
