Thomas Tuchel wants the fans to give a real chance to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyangfollowing its signature at chelsea. The technician is convinced that the former Barça player will be a major asset for his team in the coming months.
At a press conference, Thomas Tuchel spoke about the not always flattering comments that accompanied the signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at Chelsea. The Blues technician regrets that some players are judged too hastily: “Not everyone has to dress in dark blue with a boring cap! You can have a nice haircut and a nice car. It’s a problem to judge people very, very quickly, to look at this or that car and suggest that someone is unprofessional. Maybe he’s just a little crazier than us. And that’s great, because you have to think a bit off the beaten track to be special on the pitch. So for the number of goals he scored, for the attention he garnered, he was a very, very wise number nine at Dortmund and I have no doubt he will be here too.”dropped the German coach (remarks relayed by Sky Sports).
Arsenal paid him compensation to make him leave
As a reminder, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang left Arsenal last winter, after Mikel Arteta stripped him of the armband and dropped him from the first team (in particular for his delays in training). The London club had paid him 8 million euros to agree to break his contract. The Gabonese international had nevertheless scored 92 goals and delivered 21 assists in 163 games with the Gunners, between 2018 and 2022. A great deal for the player and Barça, with whom his performance was also noticed: l he former Stéphanois scored 13 goals in 24 appearances in the second half of the season. And Chelsea finally paid out 12 million euros to bring him inat the end of the transfer window.
