Gabriel has revealed why Aubameyang quit Arsenal, mentioning some of the issues that led to his departure.

Aubameyang left Arsenal by mutual consent in January after four years at the club. He joined Spanish giants Barcelona on a free transfer.

Speaking in an interview with Oh My Goal Gabriel revealed that Aubameyang’s exit was due to an issue with the coaching staff.

“Aubameyang is in my heart, we all wanted him at Arsenal. It’s something that happened between him and the coaching staff, the other players weren’t in it,”. Gabriel said in the interview.

“I said goodbye to him before he left, I hope he enjoys Barcelona, he is a very nice person with a big heart and I love him very much.”

The Gabonese forward was keen on a move to Barcelona and had no problem taking a pay cut to join his new team.

Speaking at his Barcelona unveiling earlier this month, Aubameyang revealed that his issues were only with Mikel Arteta.

“My last few months at Arsenal were complicated, that’s football sometimes.” Aubameyang said.

“For my part, I never wanted to do anything wrong. My problem was only with Arteta. I can’t say much more, I wasn’t happy.”

While both sides have their say, Aubameyang’s issues began with his misfiring form and then his disciplinary issues that caused a rift between him and Arteta.

Aubameyang has made a good start to his Barcelona career, scoring four goals in five games while Arsenal will continue their search for his replacement in the summer.
