On transfer deadline day, the 33-year-old former Arsenal striker transferred from Barcelona to Chelsea, following his contentious departure from north London in January after a falling-out with manager Mikel Arteta and being relieved of his captaincy due to conduct problems.
His goals last season helped Xavi’s team qualify for the Champions League when he came to Barcelona, but the club’s dire financial situation, compounded by the arrival of Robert Lewandowski, forced them to sell him just six months later, prompting the Gabon forward to return to England.
Aubameyang, who played for Borussia Dortmund, Saint-Etienne, AC Milan, and had loan stints at Monaco, Lille, and Dijon, signed a two-year contract with Chelsea after scoring 92 goals in 163 games for Arsenal.
On Chelsea’s YouTube account, Aubameyang opened up about some of his career’s lowest points while speaking to teammate Wesley Fofana. I’ve had a lot of difficult experiences, not just injuries, according to Aubameyang. I was fine, but at the start of my career, only sprinters were mentioning me.
