Auba - The moment I knew I had to be a footballer

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has made a big impact in a short time since his arrival at the club in January.

The Gabon international has three goals and an assist in his six games in an Arsenal shirt, and he says that the game has always been part of his life.

"I remember the first time that I kicked a ball. I was at home playing football with my father," Aubameyang told Arsenal Player.

"I wasn't thinking about becoming a professional footballer way back then - I was very young. But as soon as I began to understand football, I really wanted to be a footballer one day.

"It was when I first started playing for a team, L'Huisserie, which was near where I lived [that my ambition became clear]. I knew from that moment that football had to be a part of my life."
