‘s father describes Chelsea’s stint a “nightmare” period.
The former Arsenal captain endured a disappointing tough campaign at Chelsea after he left Camp Nou to reunite with former Thomas Tuchel.
After Tuchel’s sacking, Graham Potter took over the managerial role who left Aubameyang out of Chelsea’s 25-man Champions League squad.
He finished the season with just three goals in 21 appearances across all competitions.
The veteran forward has now signed a three-year contract with Ligue 1 giants Marseille this summer.
His father, Pierre-Francois Aubameyang reminded critics that his son had a terrible year after he was attacked during a robbery at his home in Barcelona.
“His jaw was broken by robbers at his home in Barcelona while trying to protect his wife and children,” Pierre-Francois told L’Equipe.
“At Chelsea, he played with a mask at the start. It could only be a nightmare year.
“Now it’s over. He has a smile. He knows that I’m seeing the light again because I can walk and run since my last operation. And he’s signing for [Marseille]. It is a big relief after the nightmare year that he experienced.”
