The president of the Gabonese Football Federation (FEGAFOOT) spoke about the future of the star player in his country, who he advises to leave the ‘gunner’ club.
Pierre Alain Mounguengui, president of the Gabonese Football Federation (FEGAFOOT), assured in an interview with ESPN that the star player of his country, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, should sign a contract “with a more ambitious club” if he wants to win what deserves for his talent .
The 30-year-old Arsenal forward was the Premier League’s top scorer, alongside Salah and Mané , thanks to the 22 goals he scored last season. But his great goalscoring records have not prevented the Gabonese from having yet won any title with the ‘gunners’.Aubameyang
For Mounguengui, the ambition of the London team is not the same as that of other great clubs in Europe , which is why he says that the striker should go to a better club to have greater prestige. “I don’t want to say that Arsenal is not ambitious, but it doesn’t have as much ambition as other clubs when it comes to Europe,” he told ESPN. “If Pierre,” he continued, “could secure a contract with a more ambitious club, he would definitely find his place .”
“At the individual level, we all consider him to be among the best players in the world, but the advice I give him is to continue working and attract the attention of the best and most ambitious teams, ” said the president.
Although he has surpassed ten goals in each of his last nine seasons between France, Germany and England , Aubameyang only has a German Cup, a German Super Cup and a French League Cup, something that contrasts with his enormous talent and consistency face to door. Since signing for the Gunners in 2018, where he became the top scorer in the Bundesliga, he has reached two finals, that of the Carabao Cup in that same season and that of the Europa League last season, but in both his team fell defeated .
” Aubameyang is a world-class soccer player, ” said Mounguengui, “but, for him and for anyone who has not won more titles, soccer is a collective sport.” ” Right now, he is at Arsenal and has not won anything, so it is a collective failure ,” he said.
In the current season, until the health crisis caused the suspension of the competition, Aubameyang had scored 17 goals in the Premier League. The Gabonese is approaching his last year of contract with Arsenal , and Mounguengui insisted that it is not too late for the striker to find a club that allows him to win some of the best titles.
