Aubameyang Avoids Questions Concerning His Future After Propelling Arsenal To Win The FA Cup

Following his heroic display against Chelsea in the FA Cup finals on Saturday at Wembley stadium, Gabon and Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who scored twice to help the Gunners overcome the Blues tried to stay out of contract discussion afterwards.


Aubameyang has refused to delve into his future after scoring a brace for Arsenal in the FA Cup final.


The Gabonese striker underlined his value for the Gunners with two goals against Chelsea on Saturday.


Mikel Arteta's side continued to draw inspiration from their captain, despite the uncertainty surrounding his contract.


Aubameyang has yet to agree on an extension of a contract at Emirates Stadium which now has less than 12 months to run.


The 31-year-old has been cautious about his plans and many suggest that major silverware would be needed for a prolific presence to put pen to paper.


Arsenal now have that with qualifying for the Europa League, but Aubameyang continues to reveal little.


Asked if he had any news for the club's fans on his future after leading them to another triumph, he told BBC Sport as cited by Sports Central: "Nothing. Today is about the trophy."


Arteta was also asked about his Talisman's plans, with the Spaniard confirming his belief that a deal would eventually be made.

Arteta said: "He knows what I think about him. "I want to build the squad around him. I think he wants to stay and it is just about getting the deal done. "But I think these moments will help him to realise and believe that we are in the right path and he is a big part of that. He is loved by everybody at the club. Hopefully he can continue with us.

When asked if Aubameyang will extend his time at Emirates Stadium, Arteta replied: "I think he will, yes."

However, talks will be on hold for the time being as the Gunners end their 2019-20 campaign at a high point.

It was a testing season for the North London team, during which another change of leadership was made, but optimism returned under Arteta and they now have a concrete reward for their efforts.

 Aubameyang said on sealing FA Cup success: “We enjoyed it and we are all happy.

He added on the job done by Arteta, who took the reins in December and is filling a first managerial post of his coaching career: “I think he deserved this win. He did a great job and we are all happy to have him on board and we all follow him.

Aubameyang has played a leading role in giving his boss something to celebrate against Chelsea.

The Blues took the lead early on from Christian Pulisic, who limped off later, with Arsenal restoring parity from the penalty spot.

Aubameyang's second game was worth winning when he broke through Chelsea's defense and passed Willy Caballero with his left foot.

He said of that goal with Gunner legend Ian Wright among those in attendance: “It was Wrighty in the 90s. “[Kurt] Zouma knows me well and knows I am right footed but that’s why I said ‘ok, I’ll go on my left.
