Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has always spoken very highly of his father, Pierre Aubameyang. Pierre who used to be a professional footballer has been very involved in the career of his son.

Gabonese retired footballer who played for Nice, Toulouse, and had 80 caps for Gabon national team, have served as AC Milan chief scout which means that he knows a lot about football.

Hence, according to available records, Aubameyang’s father ensured that the Arsenal star didn’t join Newcastle United from Saint-Etienne. Instead, he ensured that the Arsenal captain joined Borussia Dortmund because of the special interest he has in Jurgen Klopp, the manager of the Bundesliga club then.

It was from there that Aubameyang joined Arsenal in 2018 where he is gradually becoming one of the greatest footballers to ever wear the club’s jersey.

It is believed that Aubameyang’s father was instrumental in ensuring that the player remained at Arsenal. He was even present when the 31-year-old striker signed his three-year contract extension with Arsenal on Tuesday.
