Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang insists he still has a long way to go before he can be compared to club legends Thierry Henry and Ian Wright
The Gabon international has had an incredible start to life at Arsenal following his record £56m arrival from Borussia Dortmund in January.
Currently, Aubameyang is the sole leader of the Premier League scoring charts with 10 goals after his brace in Arsenal’s comeback 4-2 win over Tottenham in the North London derby on Sunday.
The 29-year-old even broke a record by scoring 10 times from his last 10 shots on target in the league.
But comparisons with the Gunners’ top two leading goalscorers in Henry and Wright is wide off the mark as far as Aubameyang is concerned.
“When you break records, it is always good for you to remember after your career, it’s good to write in your papers!” Aubameyang told Arsenal.com.
“But it’s tough to achieve these goals because [Henry and Wright] did a lot of things for the club and scored a lot of goals.
“I don’t know if you can compare me to them because they are legends already, I have a lot of work to do to achieve their goals.
“I am here and I am trying to do my best to achieve their goals.”
Aubameyang has scored a total of 22 goals in 32 games for Arsenal across all competitions.
The Gunners will face Manchester United away at Old Trafford tonight at 21:00 (CET).
