Arsenal superstar Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang revealed he nearly joined Tottenham earlier in his career but would rather retire now than join Arsenal’s bitter rivals. Aubameyang joined Arsenal in January 2018 and has scored 92 goals for the club from 159 appearances. He has won an FA Cup as well as the Premier League Golden Boot in 2018/19. He has played in eight North London Derbies, scoring in four to add to the four he scored against them when at Dortmund. He recently scored in the 3-1 win against Tottenham in September.
“You don’t need to ask the question, you know it [the answer] already, I would retire.” Arsenal superstar Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang said. “Even more because I don’t know if you know but a few years ago I was close to signing for Tottenham and at the end, I don’t know what they did. So, I would retire for sure.”
“I was in St-Etienne I think [at the time], I’m not sure, or at the beginning of Dortmund. I don’t remember exactly,” he added. “I came here, I went to the stadium as well to White Hart Lane. The day after they just never gave an answer, they never called back so I was like: ‘Ok, don’t worry, so that’s why every time I play against them, they know [why I am extra motivated]”.
