Paul Merson Just Produced His Most Ridiculous Claim Yet About Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Paul Merson Just Produced His Most Ridiculous Claim Yet About Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Ahead of the North London derby on Saturday afternoon, Gillette Soccer Saturday regular Paul Merson has delivered an absolute classic while talking about Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Aubameyang, who joined Arsenal in the January transfer window, will come up against Premier League outfit Spurs for the fifth time in two years this afternoon.

Despite the fact that Spurs have faced him four times in the last two years, in which time the striker has scored four goals against them, Merson thinks that Pochettino's side will struggle because they haven't "seen a lot of him."

"Spurs' defenders won't have seen a lot of Aubameyang, they won't know his movements." said Merson on Sky Sports' "The Debate" show.

Sorry to burst your bubble, Paul, but the former Borussia Dortmund striker faced Spurs twice in the Europa League back in 2016.

Then he came up against Pochettino's side twice just a year later, when he scored in the second leg despite defeat.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Responds To People Mocking His Lockdown Trim

In the past, Merson has come out with some absolute corkers. Remember when he said: "When Everton knock it long, they don't knock it long". And let's not forget the classic: "Football's all about yesterday, it's all about now".

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Comes Up With Miss Of The Season Against Newcastle

published ata day ago

Back in October last year, Merson claimed that Arsene Wenger could land the Premier League title again at Arsenal - if he had Harry Redknapp's tactical nous.

"People say he's a wheeler-dealer and it's so disrespectful," Merson said in an episode of Sky One show A League Of Their Own.

"Tactically, he's one of the best I've worked with. If Arsene Wenger had Harry Redknapp's tactical nous, Arsenal would win the league."

The 49-year-old somehow manages to capture the hearts of a nation on a weekly basis, chatting some absolute nonsense in the process, but getting around it by being unintentionally funny in front of millions watching at home.

Never change, Paul.
