Aubameyang 'sad' over Chelsea's decision to sack Tuchel

Chelsea's new signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says he was sad after Thomas Tuchel was sacked by the club.






on the last day of summer's transfer window to be reunited with his former manager Thomas Tuchel but the German coach just a few weeks later lost his job.

Aubameyang has told Chelsea's official YouTube channel:

"It’s obviously sad when someone leaves the club and obviously, I only saw him for a few days. But this is football and when you play football you have to adapt quickly and in some moments in the season, this can happen.

"I think he [Tuchel] was a bit frustrated and sad. Obviously, I will try to talk to him as soon as possible."

Former Arsenal star also has talked about Graham Potter who replaced Tuchel as Chelsea manager.

"I think he [Potter] is a really positive person and a great character. We will try to learn with him and to win as soon as possible. I think his ideas are very clear so I think it’s going to be easy. It takes time to adapt to each other but I think it’s going to be ok."

Aubameyang in this interview opened up on early career struggles and tough moments he has faced so far.

He said:

"I was okay but at the beginning of my career everyone was talking about me as a sprinter only.

"This hurts sometimes because you know where you’ve come from, you know you went through a lot of stuff and you always try your best and some people, even from your club say you’re not good at playing football."

Aubameyang also praised current Paris Saint-Germain manager Christophe Galtier who he worked with at St-Etienne.

"When I arrived in Saint-Etienne, I was happy because Christophe Galtier gave me confidence and it changed everything in my career. This is where I started scoring goals.”
