Arsenal teammates crown Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang the GOAT after FA Cup final performance

Aubameyang has been declared the GOAT by his teammates

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was the hero as Arsenal won their record 14th FA Cup on Saturday evening. 

The Gunners beat London rivals Chelsea 2-1 at Wembley, fighting back from 1-0 down after Christian Pulisic gave the Blues an early lead. 

It was their Gabonese striker who scored both goals, the first coming from the penalty spot after he was hauled down by Cesar Azpilicueta inside the box. 

Aubameyang made no mistake from 12 yards, sending Willy Caballero the wrong way. 

He then struck the knockout blow in the 69th minute, controlling a Nicolas Pepe pass before brilliantly beating Kurt Zouma and lifting his shot past the Chelsea goalkeeper. 

Mateo Kovacic was sent off by referee Anthony Taylor a few minutes later and Arsenal comfortably saw the game out to get their hands on the trophy. 

As you can imagine, it was captain Aubameyang at the centre of the celebrations, both on the pitch and in the dressing room afterwards.

Mikel Arteta’s team were no doubt partying long into the night and shortly after the team made their way off the pitch, Bukayo Saka decided to cheekily declare his teammate the GOAT. 

He handed Aubameyang an iPad with a picture of the goat emoji and captioned his Instagram story ‘There’s only 1 goat’. 

The Arsenal striker was absolutely loving the comparison, laughing along with Saka while another of his teammates held the iPad above his head. Check it out:

Brilliant. After a Man of the Match performance in the FA Cup final, we can’t blame Auba for having fun in the dressing room. 

Fans – and his teammates – will be desperate for the 31-year-old to stay another season and with his future up in the air, ending this campaign with silverware could help persuade him to do just that.
