Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang issues apology to Arsenal fans after Europa League exit

  Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has issued an apology to Arsenal fans following their Europa League exit. The Gunners suffered a 2-1 on aggregate defeat to Villarreal in the semi-final and were eliminated from the competition. And as the Gunners are 10th in the Premier League table, Mikel Arteta's side will now be without European football in the next season. "We struggled to find our rhythm in the first half and didn’t give Villarreal enough problems," Aubameyang wrote in his matchday programme notes ahead of Arsenal’s clash with West Brom on Sunday. "And when we had a chance, the luck wasn’t there for us, when I hit the post with the volley and then the header in the second half. "I thought we started the second half with more enrgy and put them under preessure, but we just couldn’t maintain that drive and ultimately, we just didn’t find a way through Villarreal. I thought my header was in when it hit the post but it just wasn’t going to happen. "Like I said, we are really upset about going out of the competition at this stage, for ourselves, for the club and most of all for you the supporters. "It’s been such a difficult season for fans and we desperately wanted to give you something positive this season – I’m just so sorry we couldn’t do it for you."   source - Metro / Join us on Telegram!/ Follow us on Twitter!
