Lacazette: 'I've never seen Aubameyang as a rival, only as a teammate'
- Alexandre Lacazette is relishing his on and off the pitch connection with fellow Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
“I never said Aubameyang’s arrival was bad for me, only people in the press said it was bad," explained the French attacker. “I was happy because I knew I could play with him. I didn’t see him as a rival, but as a teammate, so since the beginning I was happy about his signature. Of course, it’s good that we have a good relationship off the pitch.
“If people are good off the pitch, on the pitch it will be easier to play. When I didn’t score, of course I was frustrated. But last season has finished, it’s the past.“I’ve learned from this and now I am happy to start a new season. Now I know all of my team-mates, I know the club, I know how English football is. Power is the main difference here, it’s more powerful in England.”
Do you expect Auba and Lacazette to play together a lot?
