Red-hot Aubameyang joins exclusive list with Ibrahimovic, Ronaldo and Romario with Barcelona record after Arsenal exit

EX-ARSENAL star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's stunning debut campaign at Barcelona continues as he just matched a major goalscoring record.

Aubameyang joined Barca on January's transfer deadline day when the Gunners agreed to terminate his contract after a public fallout with manager Mikel Arteta.


The striker has since regained his goalscoring prowess with five goals in in six LaLiga matches with the Blaugrana, which is something no one has done since Zlatan Ibrahimovic in 2009.

The Gabon international has also matched the same record as other Barcelona legends, such as Ronaldo, Romario and Johan Cruyff.

The 32-year-old has been among the Catalan giants' most critical factors behind their sudden rejuvenation with a total of six goals in nine matches across all competitions.

This comes after well-known Arsenal fan and SunSport columnist Piers Morgan lamented the north Londoners for letting Aubameyang go.

Morgan tweeted: "Arsenal fans have spent the past 2 hours gloating about why we’re so much better without Aubameyang and they’re so glad he’s gone.

“Meanwhile, he just scored his 6th goal in 9 games for Barcelona, which includes 5 goals in 6 LaLiga games. I miss you @Auba.”

Aubameyang caught wind of Morgan's tweet and responded by suggesting his separation from the club was necessary for everyone's benefit.

The Gunners are also doing well as they are fourth in the Premier League table with three games in hand and the Gabonese ace still has plenty of happy memories from his four-year stint at the Emirates.
