‘Arsenal can’t let Aubameyang become another Ozil’ – FA Cup hero compared to Henry by Keown

The former Gunners defender is looking for bosses at Emirates Stadium to make a definitive decision on the future of the talismanic frontman Arsenal cannot allow Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s contract saga to mirror those of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, says Martin Keown, with the Gunners urged to make a definitive decision on the future of a striker he thinks is proving to be comparable with Thierry Henry. The prolific Gabon international proved he belongs in illustrious company when netting the match-winning double in the FA Cup final against Chelsea. His efforts at Wembley, which saw him convert from the penalty spot and net a stunning solo strike, mean that Arsenal will have continental competition in the Europa League next season.

FIFA Reacts as Arsenal Defeat Chelsea to Win FA Cup

FIFA has congratulated Arsenal for winning this year’s FA Cup final. The Gunners beat London rivals Chelsea 2-1 at an empty Wembley Stadium on Saturday. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was the star of the show with two goals, cancelling out Christian Pulisic’s opener. The world football governing body took to their official Twitter feed, to hail Arsenal’s achievement. The tweet read: “14 – @Arsenal12 – @ManUtd8 – @ChelseaFC8 – @SpursOfficial “Arsenal had the joint-3rd most FA Cup triumphs when the 21st century began. “They’ve astonishingly won the last 7 finals in which they’ve played to leapfrog fierce rivals Spurs & Man Utd & go clear at the top.” On Aubameyang’s performance, FIFA added: “70 – @Aubameyang768 – @MoSalah65 – @sterling7 “Since Aubameyang’s deb...

Aubameyang avoids Future Question but Arteta Optimistic Arsenal’s FA Cup Hero will Stay

The Gabonese striker netted twice to help the Gunners overcome the Blues at Wembley and was eager to steer clear of contract talk afterwards. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang refused to be drawn on his future after netting a match-winning brace for Arsenal in the FA Cup final. The Gabonese striker underlined his value to the Gunners cause with two goals against Chelsea on Saturday. Mikel Arteta’s side have continued to look to their captain for inspiration throughout the uncertainty surrounding his contract situation. Aubameyang is yet to agree an extension to a deal at Emirates Stadium that now has less than 12 months to run. The 31-year-old has remained coy on his plans, with plenty suggesting that major silverware would be required in order for a prolific presence to put pe...

Arsenal 2-1 Better Than Chelsea in FA Cup Final

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice as Arsenal came from behind to beat London rivals Chelsea 2-1 to win the FA Cup final on Saturday and making it a record 14th FA Cup win for the club.  Christian Pulisic had given Chelsea the dream start, but the Blues unravelled after Aubameyang was brought down by Cesar Azpilicueta inside the area and converted the resulting penalty.  A brilliant finish from Aubameyang 23 minutes from time earned Mikel Arteta silverware in his first season as Arsenal boss before Chelsea were controversially reduced to 10 men when Mateo Kovacic was shown an extremely soft second yellow card.  Arteta said ahead of the final he hoped a taste of success would encourage Aubameyang, who only has a year left on his contract at the Emirates, to ...

“After The FA Cup Final I’ll Become A Pastor” – Watford Keeper, Gomes

The days are ticking by and Heurelho Gomes hasn't heard a thing. No hint, no inkling, no wink of reassurance about a decision that has been taken as a foregone conclusion up in the clouds. 'There are 11 of them coming on planes,' he tells Sportsmail. 'That is six brothers and four sisters. My mum, she is coming too. 'They are flying here from Brazil. The only one who is not is one of my brothers. He cannot make it, but the rest, they are coming. They all expect me to play. Me? I expect nothing, my friend.' With that comes the warm laugh of a warm man whose life as a goalkeeper is '99 per cent' certain to end with Saturday's FA Cup final, whether he gets the gig or not. What the 38-year-old has planned for his second life will be every bit as interesting, and possibly even mor...
