It was once the world’s highest scoring machine’s humiliation.
The British media ‘Metro’ reported on the 8th (Korean time) that “Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (33) will be transferred on loan to Los Angeles FC in the United States for the remainder of the season.”
It is a humiliation for a player who was once called one of the best strikers in the world. Aubameyang became the top scorer in the German Bundesliga in the 2016-17 season with 31 goals. In the 2018–19 season, he scored 22 goals in Arsenal clothes and was awarded the joint Golden Boot. However, he recently left the team after 3 months of joining Chelsea due to a sharp decline in his skills.
It’s been eventful since last season. Aubameyang began the 2021-22 season wearing the Arsenal captain’s armband. Coach Mikel Arteta (40) fully supported him. However, Aubameyang broke the team rules and fell out of the coach’s eyes. In the end, in the winter transfer market, coach Arteta made a superpower by sending Aubameyang to FC Barcelona.
The sense of scoring was alive in Spain as well. Aubameyang saved face by scoring 11 goals and 1 assist in 17 La Liga matches. Although he was criticized for his poor performance, he did his part to some extent with his unique positioning.
It was there. Barcelona acquired special striker Robert Lewandowski (33) in the summer transfer market. Aubameyang was completely pushed out of the main striker competition. He was only briefly substituted at the end of the second half.
An old teacher reached out to Obameyang in crisis. Thomas Tuchel (49), who was Chelsea manager at the time, made a surprise signing of Aubameyang to fill the striker void. Barcelona sold Aubameyang, who was brought in as a free agent (FA), to Chelsea for 12 million euros (approximately 16.2 billion won).
But an unexpected variable popped up. Former Tuchel left the team due to friction with new Chelsea chairman Todd Boelli. Aubameyang struggled under new manager Graham Porter. He blew several chances, and as time went on, he was not guaranteed playing time. 바카라
In the end, Chelsea chose to break up. Aubameyang was also excluded from the list of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) tournament. Even according to ‘Metro’, Aubameyang was in Milan, Italy, when he missed the Premier League game against Fulham. The media added, “The season in Los Angeles starts at the end of February.”
