He has made a strong start to life at Barca, scoring five goals in his first six games for the Catalan club.

‘Barça deserves to be in front and I am very happy there because I am at home. I’m Spanish for my mother’s sake.

‘My grandfather was from Atletico and I just hope that wherever he is, he will be proud of me for playing in the league.

‘The league is a good competition for me because it allows me to utilise my qualities.

‘When you enter Camp Nou it’s something! Another dimension. I really enjoy it.’

Aubameyang scored 92 goals in 163 appearances for Arsenal, but left the Emirates Stadium under a cloud after being stripped of the captaincy by Mikel Arteta.

His final appearance for the Gunners came on December 6 and he was relieved of the armband later that month after his ‘latest disciplinary breach’.

The 32-year-old got off the mark at Barcelona with a hat-trick against Valencia in his fourth appearance and has followed that up with goals against Napoli and Athletic Bilbao.

Aubameyang also confirmed in his interview that he had contact with PSG and a club in Italy before moving to the Nou Camp.
