Former Chelsea midfielder Craig Burley believes Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang must be regretting his record switch to Arsenal during the winter transfer window. The Gabon international made a surprise move to the Gunners last month despite being ineligible to feature in the club’s Europa League campaign.
Speaking on ESPN FC, Burley sympathised with the 28-year-old, who was once linked with a big-money move to Real Madrid, he said:“We can talk about players all we want. Ultimately this is a club and this is a manager and this is a coaching staff that have brought all these players in. Aubameyang must be thinking ‘what the hell have I done? Why the hell have I signed here?’ He was at Dortmund, right, okay, they’re not the biggest club in Germany but they’ve had some success.He was linked with Real Madrid, he was linked with this club, he was linked with that club, and he ends up at Arsenal.He’s worse off, did you see his face yesterday? As they were all scurrying around about 50 yards away from him.”
