I want him to struggle at Chelsea – Arsenal legend says of Chelsea player

Former Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sealed a return to the Premier League on transfer deadline day.

Aubameyang signed for Arsenal rivals Chelsea, and many Arsenal folks aren’t happy about seeing their former captain sign for Chelsea.

Aubameyang scored 92 goals in 163 games during his five-year spell at Arsenal, and Arsenal legend Nigel Winterburn is hoping that the 33-year-old struggles at Chelsea.

On Aubameyang’s move to Stamford Bridge, Arsenal hero Winterburn told Free Super Tips: “It didn’t surprise me if I’m honest.

“Listen there was issues at Arsenal, they let him go and all of a sudden, he’s moved back to the Premier League.

“Whether he was surplus to requirements or he didn’t think he would get enough game time at Barcelona, who knows.

“They might have needed to free up space for other players, so here he is at Chelsea back in the Premier League.

“He came back to a manager he’s played under before, so it made sense, but unfortunately that manager has now gone. It’s just a case of clean slate and go again.

“He had a good period at Arsenal, but it went sour towards the end, but he’s got to try and rebuild himself at Chelsea who have had an interesting start to the season.

“It’ll be a case of can Aubameyang get himself back to the striker he was at Arsenal where he was getting 20 Premier League goals a season.

“That’s what he will want and what Chelsea will want, obviously from my point of view I hope that doesn’t happen because it means they’ll be moving up the league.

“He’s got a new manager to impress, he’s got this injury to shake off fully which could play on the back of his mind.

“We all know what he’s capable of on the pitch, but as we know you may have to juggle the other side of it to make sure he fits into all of the managers plans.”
