Aubameyang issues Arsenal rallying cry after Europa League win
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says Arsenal are out to try and win the Europa League title this season
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has insisted that Arsenal have their sights set on trying to win the Europa League this season.
The Gunners kicked off their campaign in Europe’s second tier club competition on Thursday night when they sealed a 4-2 win over Vorskla at The Emirates.
Arsenal were in solid form in the Europa League last term and they reached the semi-finals before losing to Atletico Madrid.
New Arsenal manager Unai Emery has been tasked with steering the north London side back into the Champions League for next season, with the Gunners aiming to break back into the top four this term.
However, another route back into the Champions League would be to win the Europa League this season.
And Arsenal forward Aubameyang says that the Gunners will try hard to win the European trophy this season as they look to try and enjoy a strong first season under Emery.
Speaking in an interview with Arsenal Player, Aubameyang said: “Of course [we want to win it], especially for me because I didn’t play in the Europa League last year and I am really happy to be back in this competition.
“We want to go to the final of course, it is an objective and hopefully we will do well in our next games.”
Arsenal will now turn their attentions back towards Premier League affairs and their home clash against Everton on Sunday afternoon.
The north London side are aiming to make it four wins in a row in the Premier League this term.
