Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has said he is not worried about Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s bad-boy reputation.
Aubameyang became the Gunners’ most expensive player ever this week in a £56million move from Borussia Dortmund.
The transfer happened after he fell out of favour at the German club, for skipping a team meeting.
He is also known for a flamboyant lifestyle and reportedly broke club rules on several occasions at Dortmund.
But Wenger insisted he has no concerns about the Gabon striker.
“I don’t [think] that is a problem. He spent four years in Germany, he had some problems since last year. And it was linked to the fact maybe that a transfer didn’t work in the summer, and that he had not the same commitment anymore that he had before.
“I am quite confident that being a new challenge for him, overall that his behaviour [will be good]. I know him from France, he played at Saint-Etienne, he played at Bastia, and usually, his behaviour was never a problem. He’s a professional guy,” Wenger said.
Aubameyang netted 141 goals during five seasons at Dortmund.
