Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored his third goal for the club in yesterday’s 3-0 win over Watford, and says that although he’s settling in after his arrival from Dortmund in January has been frustrated by his limited playing time.
The 28 year old cannot play in the Europa League because of UEFA rules that leave him cup-tied despite the fact he never appeared in the competition this season.
It was something Arsene Wenger hit out at last month, and the club record signing admits it’s made life more difficult for him.
“When I was in Dortmund, I was playing every three days but now I play once a week or have a long time between games,” he said.
“It is not easy. I am really frustrated because the rules are a bit … I don’t know how to say it in English but I am disappointed because I can’t help my team.
“That’s life. I have to deal with it. It was a bit difficult at the beginning but I am feeling better.
“I didn’t play a lot in January so it was difficult to find the rhythm. Now I am feeling better.
“I work hard, I work a lot in the last weeks and I am happy because I feel better.”
