Chelsea manager, Graham Potter, says he’s optimistic Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will start scoring goals for the team ahead of today’s game against Crystal Palace.
Recall that Aubameyang started Potter’s first game in charge at Stamford Bridge in the Champions League.
But the former Arsenal captain has failed to make the desired impact since his deadline day signing from Barcelona but remains “focused”, says his new manager.
Potter described the 33-year-old as a “top professional”, while expressing the respect he has for the striker’s club career.
“I’ve enjoyed working with him in the brief time we’ve been together,” Potter told reporters.
“He’s focussed, he wants to do well, he wants to score goals.
Aubameyang was involved in the Amazon Original sports docuseries All or Nothing: Arsenal, which documented the club by spending time with the coaching staff and players behind the scenes both on and off the field throughout their 2021–22 season.
Aubameyang was born in Laval, France. He is the son of former Gabonese international footballer Pierre Aubameyang and younger half-brother of Catilina and Willy, who have both played for Milan’s youth teams. His mother is Spanish. He is married to Alysha Behague, the couple have two sons, Curtys and Pierre. In August 2022, Aubameyang suffered a broken jaw during a violent robbery of his home in Barcelona.
He is multilingual and speaks French, English, Spanish, Italian, and German.
