Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was told ‘you’re not good at football.’
The former Arsenal captain joined Chelsea from Barcelona on the deadline day.
This was his third club in the space of eight months after he forced his way out of Arsenal in January.
He left Barcelona as he was deemed surplus following the arrival of Robert Lewandowski at Camp Nou.
The Gabon forward has signed a two-year contract with the Blues and he reflects on his difficult moments on his career.
“I’ve been through a lot of bad moments, not injuries,” Aubameyang said.
“I was okay but at the beginning of my career everyone was talking about me as a sprinter only.
“This hurts sometimes because you know where you’ve come from, you know you went through a lot of stuff and you always try your best and some people, even from your club say you’re not good at playing football.
“After that I changed my mind and when I arrived in Saint-Etienne, I was happy because Christophe Galtier gave me confidence and it changed everything in my career. This is where I started scoring goals.”
