Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s ex-teammates at Dortmund have wished him well after the 28-year-old completed his £55.5m move to Arsenal on transfer deadline day.

Despite the German media waging all-out war on Aubameyang and his family after the news that he could be moving to Arsenal broke, it seems his former teammates don’t harbour any ill-will towards the 28-year-old at all.

After the Gabon international completed his move to north London once and for all on Wednesday, ex-Manchester City youth player, Jadon Sancho, bid Aubameyang a heart-felt farewell on Twitter.


The 17-year-old, who obviously struck up a firm friendship with the striker during his short time in Germany, said it was an honur to play with him and admitted he’ll miss him.

Robert Lewandowski, who only played with Aubameyang for one season before he signed for Bayern, also said it had been a pleasure ‘to compete’ with him and wished him well in a shorter tweet.


Aubameyang retweeted and responded to Sancho’s tweet, referring to him as his ‘lil bro’.


It just goes to show that while the German media would have you believe the striker was evil incarnate, his teammates, old and not so old, still liked him.

As Aubameyang said in his own Instagram post, which said goodbye to Dortmund, the 28-year-old was supposed to leave in the summer.
