Chelsea’s Aubameyang opens up on ‘bad moments’ with former club

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been discussing the bad moments he experienced whilst playing for a former club.


Chelsea completed the signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from FC Barcelona on deadline day.

The deal set Chelsea back £12m, with Marcos Alonso heading in the opposite direction.

Aubameyang made his debut for the Blues in the Champions League last Tuesday vs Dinamo Zagreb.

Aubameyang looked sharp early on, nearly setting up several goals and coming close himself.

However, as the game wore on, both he and Chelsea faded and eventually succumbed to a 1-0 loss which led to Thomas Tuchel’s dismissal the next day.

Aubameyang then featured for 66 minutes as Chelsea drew 1-1 with RB Salzburg in the Champions League in what was Graham Potter’s first game in charge.

He has not made his league debut for the Blues yet due to the Queen’s funeral causing games to be postponed.

Now, in a recent interview, the forward has revealed struggles he experienced at the start of his career with Saint-Etienne:

“I’ve been through a lot of bad moments,” he said.

“I mean, not injury. At the beginning of my career, everyone was talking about me like a sprinter only. You know, this hurts sometimes because you know where you come from.

“You know that you went through a lot of stuff and you always try your best. Some people, even from your club, they say that you are not good at playing football.

“After that I changed my mind and when I arrived at Saint-Etienne I was happy because Christophe Galtier, at that time, gave me the confidence and it changed everything in my career and this is where I started scoring goals.”
