He will wear number 25 at FC Barcelona. Pierre Emerick Aubameyang was officially presented this Thursday. The Gabonese striker said he was happy to now play in the championship of his dreams.

“I’ve always had a dream of playing in La Liga and I think it’s an incredible opportunity for me. Since childhood that is a dream. So this is the chance of a lifetime. And of course, everyone knows that Barca is one of the best clubs in the world, so I’m here very happy,” said Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang,” said the Gabonese Striker.

The 32-year-old former Gunners captain was released from his lucrative contract by the Premier League club on Monday, having not made an appearance since being disciplined in December for returning home late from an agreed trip abroad

‘It was only with him (Mikel Arteta) and he made the decision. I can’t say much, he wasn’t happy and that’s it. I can’t say more because it happened like that. He wasn’t very happy, I stayed very calm and that’s it,”  explained the Barcelona striker.

The Gabonese could make his debut for his club this weekend. FC Barcelona will face Athletico Madrid.
