Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been warned that he wouldn’t be a starter if he moved from Chelsea to Major League Soccer side Los Angeles FC.

Los Angeles FC are reportedly interested in signing Aubameyang this month before the start of the new MLS season.

Quizzed on if Aubameyang would get more time on pitch at LAFC than at Chelsea, former MLS star Herculez Gomez said: “No, not as a starter – and you’re not bringing him in to sit on the bench.

“Why not? Because Chicho Arango, who was a goal scorer and produced so many dangerous plays for LAFC, who was for all intensive purposes already a DP (Designated Player) in his numbers on the field, was being asked to do all those other things.

“The high press, the defensive scheme, the work rate, I don’t think you’re going to get that here. But it doesn’t mean you can’t be a good player, it doesn’t mean he can’t be a star player in Major League Soccer.

“With this LAFC, I don’t know if it’s the best fit or the natural fit. That being said, those players can find a way to impact the game anyway.”
