Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang is unsure how he even missed the chance to score late in Arsenal’s loss to Olympiacos.

Arsenal crashed out of the Europa League on away goals last night after conceding a late extra-time goal.

However, they could have scored an even later match-winner of their own.

The ball fell to club captain and leading goal scorer Aubameyang. But from only five yards out he missed the target.

Speaking to BT Sport, he was not only disappointed but quite unsure as to how he actually missed.

He said:

“Very, very disappointing.”

“What can I say? It is very, very hard. It was a tough game again.”

“The last-minute goal was, yeah, unlucky for us. That is it.”

“I don’t even know [how I missed that chance late on].”

“I feel very, very bad.”

“It can happen but I do not know how I missed this chance.”

“I was tired, I had some cramps but it is not an excuse.”
