VIVA Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez has called their new signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang a gift from heaven. Xavi revealed this after Aubameyang scored his fifth goal in LaLiga as Barcelona beat Osasuna 4-0, on Monday 14 March 2022, early morning WIB.
Aubameyang joined Barcelona on a free transfer from Arsenal in January 2022. He decided to leave the Gunners after falling out with manager Mikel Arteta.
The 32-year-old has been in brilliant form since moving to Spain, scoring five goals in LaLiga and one more in the Europa League.
“Aubameyang has been a gift from heaven to Barcelona. He is a player who has a positive aura, he comes into the dressing room well, he adapts very well to the team, he creates chances, he scores goals, he presses and he has a privilege in training. ,” said Xavi, as quoted by The Athletic.
In addition to praising Aubameyang, Xavi was also fascinated by Ousmane Dembele’s performance in the match against Osasuna. Moreover, Dembele scored an assist during Aubameyang’s goal.
In fact, Dembele had become an enemy of Barcelona fans because of his inconsistent appearance. In addition, Blaugrana fans also hate him because of the stalled contract negotiations.
