Aubameyang uncomfortable with Thierry Henry and Ian Wright comparison

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has said that it is far too early to be compared to the likes of club legends Thierry Henry and Ian Wright.

Aubameyang only arrived in the Premier League at the end of January, but in his 10 months at the club, he has already netted 22 goals in 32 appearances, including two in last weekend’s North London derby against Spurs.

His impressive goalscoring form has seen him likened to prolific Arsenal strikers Thierry Henry and Ian Wright, who scored 228 and 185 goals respectively for the Gunners.

However, the Gabon international has said that he has plenty to do to be considered in the same company:

“When you break records, it is always good for you to remember after your career, it’s good to write in your papers!” Aubameyang told

“But it’s tough to achieve these goals because [Henry and Wright] did a lot of things for the club and scored a lot of goals.

“I don’t know if you can compare me to them because they are legends already, I have a lot of work to do to achieve their goals.

“I am here and I am trying to do my best to achieve their goals.”
