Aubameyang is imitating Henry and Bergkamp
Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang said that he wanted to stand in one row with club’s legends Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp.
The Gunners had to update their transfer record in January of this year, in order to invite Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund. However, such a large investment proved to be justified, because Pierre copes with the role of the team’s leading scorer for now.
Almost 14 years ago, Henry and Bergkamp skillfully demonstrated their ability to ran at the shooting positions from the flanks, so the 29-year-old forward is ready to imitate their game.
Pierre admitted that he preferred to play in the center of the attack. Nevertheless, he is a team player, so he will play on the flank if the coach needs him there.
Aubameyang is happy to imitate Bergkamp and Henry as they are the best example for any attacker, not necessarily at Arsenal. The attacker is happy to follow their footsteps but recognizes that it is very difficult to approach the same level of performance.
