Adebayor Says There's No Way Back For Aubameyang At Arsenal

EMMANUEL ADEBAYOR believes there is no way back for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at Arsenal because Gunners fans don't know how to "forgive".

Adebayor, 37, left the Emirates for Manchester City in 2009 after scoring 62 goals in 142 games for the North London outfit.

Arsenal supporters chastised him for leaving to join a fellow Premier League rival.

And Adebayor infamously hit back by running the length of the field to celebrate in front of the travelling Gunners fans when he scored against them for Man City at the Etihad.

Now Aubameyang is having his own battle with the Gunners faithful after being stripped of the captaincy for a disciplinary matter in December.

He has not featured for the club since then but has now returned from Africa Cup of Nations duty despite not playing a single game due to experiencing heart lesions after contracting Covid.

Aubameyang has now been cleared to play, but Adebayor does not feel he has a place at Arsenal anymore.

He said: "I know he's definitely going to go through a lot because that's Arsenal for you. You can't do whatever you do.

"They never learn or they never knew how to forgive. So, I know he will go through a lot.

"But he's a strong player, he's a good player, he's a fantastic player. I wish him all the best.

"I sent him a message already because we just want him to bounce back.

"He's our African brother and we want him to keep representing Africa the way he was doing it before the problem."

Adebayor was then asked whether he thinks there is a way back for him, to which he replied: "At Arsenal I don't think so.

"This is what I know because it happened to me also. Not in the same way, but a way back? At Arsenal, I would be surprised [if he had a future].

"But as I'm telling you, he's a great player so let's see how he ends up."

Aubameyang has scored 92 goals in 163 appearances for Arsenal since joining them from Borussia Dortmund for £56million in January 2018.

However, Mikel Arteta's side have lost just one of five Prem games since Aubameyang's disciplinary issue.

Arsenal currently sit sixth in the table, just two points behind Manchester United in fourth. (UK Sun)
