It takes a certain amount of confidence to take on the legendary No 14 shirt - but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was ready for it.
As our all-time leading goalscorer, Thierry Henry will forever be associated with that number but Auba is proud to follow him.
“There weren't many numbers left to choose from," he told Arsenal Player. "I wanted number 7, but Mkhi arrived and took it.
"I thought, 'Why not follow in the footsteps of a legend?' Even though I don't compare myself to Henry, because he achieved so many great things - it's hard to compare.
"But I'm proud to wear the number 14 shirt and I hope to honour it.”
