ARSENAL striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has dedicated his FA Cup double to his late grandmother.

The 31-year-old was in sensational form as his two goals helped see off Manchester City.

After the game the Gabon international uploaded a picture of him celebrating with his team-mates after scoring, with an emotional caption.

He wrote: “That’s a team performance!!!

“Today it’s a big day I know you not on this world anymore but your soul still with me!!!

“These two goals were for u Mémé (grandmother) for your birthday.”

It’s not the first time Aubameyqang has paid tribute to his grandmother.

Back in 2018 he had his nan’s name Marina shaved into his head for the game before scoring twice in a 3-0 win against Stoke.

After the game, he said: “It’s my grandmother’s name. She passed away last week. It is a dedication to her.”

Speaking after the 2-0 win against Manchester City, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta says the win could convince Aubameyang to commit his future to the north London club.

Aubameyang, the club’s top scorer this season with 25 goals in all competitions, is out of contract at the end of next season and has not yet agreed to an extension.

Arteta said: “Good and beautiful moments, they are always better than the bad ones.

 

“As I told you, the way I look at him when I speak with him, he sounds pretty convinced.

“But obviously if he can see that success and the direction we are taking is the right one, I think he will be more positive about it, yes.

“Hopefully it will help him to be more convinced we are going in the right direction.”
