[Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang challenges the fastest man in history Usain Bolt to a race] I’m waiting for you man. I hope to see you one day, and let’s do this challenge!

[Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang talks about his family] In the family, we have football in our blood. I was already conditioned by watching my father play. I remember at half-time in Le Havre, with my friends we made a ball out of paper and played our own game
[Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang talks about his former mentor Christophe Galtier] When I arrived at Saint-Etienne, Christophe Galtier asked one thing of me: get my shots on target. He told me to hit the target come what may, because the ball can go in because of a bad bounce, for example. Since that day, I have kept in mind the idea of trying my luck, but getting it on target
[Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang adores all the trappings of a prima donna without being one] I have always dreamed of being famous, so I make the most of it. I’m often asked if it’s annoying to do so many photos and sign so many autographs. No, it’s not. I’ve always dreamed of that, so I’m not going to grumble! I put myself in the shoes of the other people. When I was little, I would have loved to have taken a photo with a star. So, today, I don’t count
[Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang talks about his unremarkable hometown of Laval] I feel at home, far from the noise in Dortmund. Once, I decided to spend my holidays somewhere other than Laval. I cracked. Impossible! Each time I leave Laval and its healthy environment, I really feel good, my body is rested. I go back to Dortmund full of energy

[Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang tells that he’s relishing the prospect of challenging Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski to be the Bundesliga’s top goalscorer] The race is on. When Lewy moves ahead, I am used to catching him up. It’s enough for me to overtake him shortly before the season finishes

[Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang speaks about why he chose to play for Gabon over France and Spain] I was very young when I decided. Players often take their time to consider their options and make the right choice, but for me the choice was clear. I wanted to follow in my father’s footsteps. He was captain of the national side in the past. I could well have chosen to play for Spain or France. I played for the French under-21 team, but I realised very quickly that in my heart I wanted to emulate my father

[Pierre-Francois Aubameyang hasn’t agreed to coach Gabon] You wondered why I have problems with you? Why I did not want to come and play for the national team? This is the proof again. You announce to the whole world about my father being appointed coach of the national team whereas you did not even have an agreement with him.
The president of the federation called my dad and did not even care about his state of health, even though he is sick right now. To rush and give a press conference while my father told him he would give his answer the next day: negative (by the way).
Without even giving him the choice, for example, to negotiate over his staff … In short the day when the federation stops showing amateurism, the national team may then be able to move forward and find consistent results.

[Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang withdraws from Gabon squad to host Mali] It’s weird that the football federation immediately publishes that a player cannot come (for national duty) for other reasons after they received an email from my doctor but still has not posted on it for more than 24 hours. You say that Aubameyang declined as if I had refused to come for another reason

[Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette are charged with leading Arsenal to glory in Wednesday’s Europa League final with Chelsea] We get together and laugh a lot. We share the same idea of football. It’s the first time that I’ve played with a striker like Laca, but the fact is that we understand each other well and that makes it more natural and it makes the difference

[Lacazette injury not as bad as first feared as Arsenal striker substituted with cramp] When you go in the dressing room after scoring a goal it is always positive so it was crucial to score then. When you go 2-0 up you expect to win whoever you are playing. The goal before half-time changed the momentum
