Arsenal striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has said Alexandre Lacazette’s “positive” attitude helped him settle down when he arrived in January.
Aubameyang, who overtook Lacazette as the Gunners’ record signing, has also taken his spot in Arsene Wenger’s team.
However, Wenger started both forwards for the first time at Newcastle on Sunday, with Aubameyang setting up Lacazette for Arsenal’s goal in a 2-1 loss.
“My friend Lacazette was at Lyon when I was at Saint-Etienne,” Aubameyang told Arsenal’s official website.
“He’s a player I appreciate and was good for me when I arrived here as he’s a nice person, very positive.
“I wasn’t 100 percent sure about him when I came here as there were some Lyon players I didn’t get on well with – but he wasn’t someone I had problems with when I played against them.
“I’m really happy to get to know someone so positive, and he helped me settle into the dressing room.”
