Wright: Aubameyang deserves to win trophies

Arsenal legend Ian Wright says he is praying Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang stays at the club this summer, but admits he could not begrudge him a move.

“If I’m going to sit here and speak about Aubameyang at the stage of his career that he’s at, maybe wanting to win things, maybe one last chance and people are saying that Real Madrid are sniffing around him,” Wright told Sporf. 

“If he did [leave]… if he was somebody that was tempted away, I’m not sure that people could really fault him at this stage because you look at Arsenal and the current plight, you have to say we’re going through a transitional period, coming off of [Arsene] Wenger, coming off of Unai Emery and now getting the coach that I believe is going to take us to the promised land.

“It depends totally on whether Aubameyang has the patience to wait for this to kick in but if he didn’t I’m not sure at his age what people could say, he’s somebody that deserves to be playing at a level where he’s able to win things.

“Depending on his ambition, his people around him and what they’re saying to him, how much he loves the club – and I know he loves the club immensely – you have to pray that’s going to be enough for him to stay.

“But I’m not going sit here and say anything other than I wish him all the best with what he does but I pray to God he stays at Arsenal.”
