Arsenal's Aubameyang must join the most ambitious club: Gabon's FA chief

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang you should move to a more ambitious club if you want to win trophies, according to the president of the Gabon football association Pierre Alain Mounguengui .

Aubameyang joined Arsenal in January 2018 for about 56 million pounds ($ 69.4 million) and has since scored 61 goals in all competitions. He was the league's top scorer last season with 22 strikes and has 17 league goals in the current campaign.

Gabon's 30-year international contract with the Premier league The club expires at the end of next season.

I don't want to say that Arsenal aren't ambitious, but Arsenal don't have ambitions as high as some other clubs as far as Europe is concerned, Mounguengui told ESPN.

So if Pierre could secure a contract with a more ambitious club, he would definitely find his place there.

On an individual level, we all consider him one of the best players in the world, but the advice I give him is to continue working and attract the attention of the biggest and most ambitious clubs.

Arsenal were ninth in the standings before the coronavirus pandemic suspended the football season in England.

The North London club has not qualified for the Champions League since 2015-16 and I have lost two finals since the arrival of Aubameyang: the League Cup in 2018 and the European league last season.

Aubameyang is a world-class player, but for him, or for anyone else in Europe who hasn't earned a great honor, soccer is a collective sport, Mounguengui added.

Right now, he's at Arsenal and he's won nothing here. So it's a collective failing.
