A double Aubameyang avoided Arsenal which had its worst ranking since 1995, yet another white season and finish in style. The club, coached by Mikel Arteta, beat London rivals Chelsea in the FA Cup final 2-1, after reversing a sticky situation. Indeed, the attacker of the blues, Christian Pulisic opened the scoring in the 5th minute, but thanks to two goals from the Gabonese international, the Gunners won the final and lifted the 14th FA Cup in their history, and qualified by the same pfor the next edition of the Europa League.
It is also the first trophy for Arsenal manager of Spain, Mikel Arteta on the sidelines in his first half-season at the helm.
The former international de la Roja, who played on the side of PSG, was Pep Guardiola’s assistant at Manchester City for many seasons before taking over the Crisis Gunners in December with the departure of Unai Emery.
Alexandre Lacazette carries Saliba away following Arsenal’s victory
Newly arrived in the Premier League, against the sum of 30 million euros from ASSE, the 19-year-old French central defender, William Saliba was chambered by his compatriot, Alexandre Lacazette at the end of the final of the oldest competition in the history of Soccer.
Indeed, in a video posted by the Gabonese international, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on his Instagram account, we see the former Olympique player Lyonnais, Alexandre Lacazette chamber his teammate and former central defender of Saint-Étienne, William Saliba: “It’s not Saint-Etienne here, you win titles here“, he mocked, which shows that the rivalry between OL and ASSE is also present thousands of kilometers from the Rhône.
But, the Arsenal scorer who played for Saint-Etienne between 2011 and 2013, Aubameyang was keen to defend the 19-year-old: “Oh, calm down big “, he said to his attacking partner.
Poor William Saliba. 😂🤣

Supporters from Lyon and Saint-Etienne wanted to react on social networks to this little spade from the French player: “Lacazette, what did he win with Lyon?” …
“The guy is zero he is useless and he does the Keke” … “He is not wrong, Saint-Etienne 0 trophies for 40 years” … “Lyon’s last title? 2012! Sainté’s last title? 2013! Good night! “
Have pity Lacazette …. a hologram since he arrived in England and he dares to open his mouth … Aubameyang that would be understandable but not you

Arsenal captain drops the trophy
The post-match antics of Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be remembered just as much as his winning double.
The former Borussia Dortmund player first struggled to grab the cup by taking it from the base. You could see his puzzled and confused gaze as he tried to lift the trophy and things got even more embarrassing.
With his teammates lined up on the Wembley lawn, he walked past them ready to lift the trophy to celebrate the FA Cup victory after a disappointing 8th place in the English league, far from qualifying places for the Champions League. Thereafter Aubameyang dropped the famous trophy of the dean of competitions, in general hilarity.
Internet users shared their reactions at the sight of this awkward gesture from the Gabonese: “aubameyang hasn’t won a trophy in so long the guy forgot how it works“.
Other Twitter users have noticed that Alexandre Lacazette, unlike his teammates, did not find this blunder very funny: “Lacazette did not find it funny at all when Aubameyang dropped the trophy“, wrote a surfer on the social network.
