Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is relishing the club captaincy having been handed the armband in November.
The Gabon international feels honoured to lead the team on and off the pitch.
“It’s a big honour when you see how many great captains we had in this team so I feel very proud and I always try to give my best to give advice to the young players and do my best for the team,” Aubameyang said at the Nad Al Sheba Sports Complex in Dubai, UAE.
The 30-year-old has led by example this season as his 14 goals in the Premier League makes him the top scorer for Arsenal.
He’s also only three goals behind league-leader Jamie Vardy in that department and when asked if he has his eye on the Golden Boot, Aubameyang didn’t hold back.
“Yes. Why not? The most important is the team and our targets. If I can be a top scorer, that’s cool but for the moment we try to get some wins and that’s the most important.”
Arsenal have been conducting warm-weather training in Dubai during the Premier League winter break and Aubameyang believes it has benefited the team as they prepare to finish the season strong.
“It’s good for the spirit of the team. We’re feeling well and we have great facilities. I think it’s important for us to be here and we try to improve everyday.”
