Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang may have taken to life at Barcelona with aplomb, but pictures of the Gabonese striker in Sydney show he still cares a lot about his old team Arsenal.
Arsenal controversially let Aubameyang, 32, leave the club for free in January after boss Mikel Arteta froze the former captain after a series of misdemeanors.
The Gunners, having failed to replace Aubameyang with No.1 target Dusan Vlahovic, had to regret that decision as they were overtaken for fourth by north London rivals Tottenham.

Meanwhile, Aubameyang hasn’t looked back since moving to the Camp Nou, scoring 11 goals in 17 appearances for the Catalans to help lift Xavi’s side to a second-place finish.
Barcelona are currently on a post-season trip to Australia, where they will face an A-League All Star team in Sydney, but pictures of Aubameyang show that he bears no ill will towards his former club.
After a training session at Accor Stadium, Aubameyang approaches a group of fans with a pen ready to sign a legion of Barcelona shirts, but a familiar shirt catches his eye.
The 32-year-old was controversially released by Arsenal after falling out with Mikel Arteta.
He has made Arsenal regret that call by shooting the goals at Barca while Arsenal finished fifth.
The 32-year-old bypasses several fans and stops in front of an Arsenal supporter to sign his red and white shirt.
Arteta’s decision to let Aubameyang leave midway through the season came back to haunt him with several Arsenal fans criticizing the Spaniard for his costly mistake.
Former Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan has been an outspoken critic of the Gunners boss and fervently backed Aubameyang in the rift that has divided Arsenal fans.
However, after training in Sydney, he made the effort to sign an Arsenal shirt.
“Arsenal fans have spent the last two hours gloating about why we are so much better off without Aubameyang and are so glad he is gone,” he tweeted in March.
Meanwhile, he has just scored his sixth goal in 9 games for Barcelona, which includes 5 goals in 6 La Liga games. I miss you @Auba.’
However, the Gabonese replied: “Thank you Piers, but sometimes everyone benefits from a separation, the most important thing is that everyone is happy now.” And we had good times that I will not forget.
