I left Arsenal without proper goodbye – Aubameyang

“I’m sad I did not get the chance to help my teammates in the last few weeks, but I have nothing but respect for this club and truly wish all my guys and the fans all the best and many successful years in the future, he said.

Gabonese international Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says not being able to say a proper goodbye to Arsenal fans “hurts” as he finalise his move to Spanish club fcbarcelona.com on Wednesday.

The 32-year-old former Gunners captain was pictured training with his prospective new teammates after arriving in Spain on Monday before the transfer deadline.

“I’m sad I did not get the chance to help my teammates in the last few weeks, but I have nothing but respect for this club and truly wish all my guys and the fans all the best and many successful years in the future, he said.

“To the Arsenal fans, Thank you for making London home for myself and my family for the past four years. We went through ups and downs together and your support meant everything to me.

“Having the chance to win trophies and the honour of being the captain of this club is something I will forever keep in my heart.

“I have always been 100 per cent focused and committed on doing everything I can for this club which is why leaving without a real goodbye hurts – but that is football.
