Arsenal striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has said that he is ‘really proud’ after breaking a record previously held by Thierry Henry during the Gunners’ clash against Norwich City.
The Gabon forward brought up a half century of Premier League goals for Arsenal in just his 75th appearance as Mikel Arteta’s side thumped Norwich 4-0 on Wednesday evening In doing so, Aubameyang eclipsed Premier League legend Henry’s record for the north London outfit.
Aubameyang joined the gunners in a £56million move from German club, Borussia Dortmund in 2018 and has now scored 62 goals in 101 appearances for the club.
Asked about breaking Henry’s Arsenal record, Aubameyang told Sky Sports: “[I am] really proud, really proud.
“First of all I’m proud of the team because we did a great job. I’m really happy and proud.
“My performance was good, I think. I’m always happy to score goals and help the team win games.”
Aubameyang scores the first goal against Norwich on Wednesday evening and then added the hosts’ third after Granit Xhaka doubled the Gunners’ lead before half-time.
Cedric Soares then netted his first Arsenal goal as Arteta’s side secured an emphatic 4-0 victory to climb to seventh in the Premier League.
