Arsenal manager Unai Emery claims strikers Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are among the finest he has worked with.
Emery built and nurtured his reputation at Valencia, Sevilla and Paris Saint-Germain, where David Villa, Fernando Morientes, Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani and Neymar were established among Europe’s leading forwards.
Although inheriting an uncertain defence at Arsenal, in Lacazette and Aubameyang he has been working with two prolific goalscorers whose understanding is improving by the week.
Their combined 37 goals have the Gunners on course for a return to the Champions League. “I had at Valencia, Villa and Morientes; (Roberto) Soldado and (Aritz) Aduriz,” Emery said ahead of today’s clash with Everton. “I had at Sevilla (Kevin) Gameiro and (Carlos) Bacca.

I had at Paris Saint-Germain, Cavani and Mbappe.
Here I have Aubameyang and ‘Laca’. It’s perfect. “Each striker has his qualities and characteristics but one is similar.
They are strikers and score a lot of goals. All of them. “That’s Villa, (Alvaro) Negredo, Carlos Bacca, Gameiro, Cavani, Morientes, and Soldado, and now here, Lacazette and Aubameyang. It’s the same. “We need a lot of good passes, good crosses, to give them the best option to score in the box. We can be proud that both are with us.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
