Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Verbally Abused By Arsenal Fans Following Crystal Palace Draw
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was verbally abused by Arsenal fans following their draw with Crystal Palace on Sunday night.
A video has emerged on Twitter of the Gabonese forward sat in his Lamborghini Aventador as Arsenal supporters surround it hurling abuse.
Check out the video below.
Here we have Preciana Brown, shouting abuse at @Aubameyang7 after the game on Sunday; "£2000 a year to watch shit? Fuck off".- noah richman (@noahrichman89) October 29, 2019
Weird she's shouting it at the player that's bailed us out on numerous occasions already this season:thumbsup:♂️ pic.twitter.com/ocO1gfUUKN
One fan can be heard shouting: "£2,000 a year to watch s***... f*** off!"
Another adds: "These people pay £1,800 for a season ticket... they are your support!"
Harsh words for Aubameyang who has been one of the most clinical strikers in the Premier League since his arrival.
Since signing from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018, Aubameyang has scored 49 goals in 76 games.
Without his goals this season, Unai Emery's side would be 19th in the Premier League table and battling relegation.
Tensions are still high in the Arsenal camp following Granit Xhaka's outburst during Sunday's game.
Xhaka's subsitution was met with cheers and the Arsenal captain responded by telling Gunners fans to 'f**k off'.
Not a great afternoon for Granit Xhaka...- Sky Sports Premier League (@SkySportsPL) October 28, 2019
The Arsenal captain was jeered by his own fans as he was substituted, before reportedly swearing at the crowd and rejecting a handshake from Unai Emery! :flushed:

Emery has confirmed that Xhaka won't play any part in tonight's Carabao Cup tie with league leaders Liverpool.
The Arsenal boss has said Xhaka is 'devastated' about the whole situation.
Per The Daily Mail, Emery said in his press conference yesterday:
"This morning, he trained as normal with the group but he is devastated and he is sad about the situation.
"His commitment with the club is a great commitment every time. He wants to help.
"I think we make individual mistakes and we need to make apologies." :grimacing:- Sky Sports Premier League (@SkySportsPL) October 29, 2019
Unai Emery says that Granit Xhaka is "sad" and "devastated" after he was booed off the pitch by Arsenal fans in Sunday's 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace...:point_down:
"His behaviour was perfect in training, with the group and with the club. He knows he was wrong. He was wrong and he feels it inside very deeply. But that is normal as a human."
Regardless of what fans think of the Xhaka situation, that spilling over into abuse of Aubameyang seems very harsh.
