Aubameyang: I'm sure next season is going to be a good one for us.


Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is convinced the future is bright for Arsenal heading into next season.

Arsene Wenger ended his 22-year reign in charge of the Gunners with a 1-0 win over Huddersfield on Sunday, with Aubameyang scoring the winner.

Arsenal now have to appoint Wenger's successor and Aubameyang - who scored 10 goals in 12 appearances for the north London side after his January move says the new coach will have a lot of talent to work with when he arrives.

When asked if he was excited about next season, the Gabon international said as Sky Sports reported: "Yes, of course. In the last few weeks, we have played well. We have a lot of young players and for sure it's good for the (new) manager.

"It looks good for the future and I'm sure next season is going to be a good one for us."

The former Borussia Dortmund striker was happy they won the last match Wenger managed.

"It was important for us because it was the last game for the boss," he said. "It was important we won this game for him.

"We gave him a big round of applause. We had talked a lot already and we wrote on a book for him.

"It was special I scored the goal and I'm very happy. It's also our first three points (on the road) this year."

Asked if he was surprised by the Frenchman’s departure, he replied: “This is the life. This is football and sometimes you never know. I was happy to play for him.

"I learned a lot. It was not a lot of time to work with him, but I learned a lot and I'm happy to be here."
