Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has admitted that all parties have benefited from him leaving Arsenal during the January transfer window.
The Gabon international was stripped of his captaincy in north London back in December following a disciplinary breach and failed to make any of Mikel Arteta’s subsequent matchday squads before eventually departing for the Blaugrana at the end of the winter window.
He has since enjoyed an excellent run of form, scoring six times in nine outings for Xavi’s side, with controversial Gunners supporter Piers Morgan taking to social media to criticise fans for their treatment of the former Borussia Dortmund centre-forward.
Morgan’s Tweet read: “Arsenal fans have spent the past 2hrs gloating about why we’re so much better without Aubameyang & they’re so glad he’s gone.
“Meanwhile, he just scored his 6th goal in 9 games for Barcelona, which includes 5 goals in 6 La Liga games. I miss you @Auba.”
Aubameyang then replied to the tweet, claiming that everyone benefited from the move, whilst also stating that he will never forget the good times that he had at the Emirates Stadium.
His response was: “Thanks Piers but Sometimes everyone benefits from a separation most important is that everyone is happy now And we had good times that I will don’t forget.”
Arsenal have won all five matches since the veteran frontman left the club and they now sit fourth in the current Premier League standings, one point above Manchester United, who have played three more times in the league this term.
However, Arteta’s side face a tough test on Wednesday night when they welcome Liverpool to north London, with the Reds having secured a 4-0 win at Anfield in the corresponding fixture earlier this season.
