Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang won the FA Cup for Arsenal with his Wembley double, but left Gunners fans guessing about his future.

The Gabon striker dropped the trophy amid celebrations, but was his only puncher of the day, after his two goals led Arsenal to a 2-1 victory over Chelsea.

His first goal was a safe penalty kick and the second strike was one to savor, twisted by Kurt Zouma before lifting the ball over Willy Caballero.

When asked what he could say about his future, given that his contract expires at the end of next season, Aubameyang told BBC One: “Nothing, just today, trophy, that’s all.”

It was a day he and Arsenal deservedly savored, and a spot in next season’s Europa League awaits them.

“We enjoyed today. We are all happy, ”said Aubameyang.

“Emi [goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez] is crying. That shows that he is really involved in this game and in this trophy. “

Mikel Arteta joined Arsenal as head coach in November, and Aubameyang praised his impact.

“I think he deserved this victory. I think he did a great job and we are happy to have him on board. We just follow him, ”said the 31-year-old man.

Speaking of his stunning winning goal, Aubameyang said: “Zouma knows me well. He knows I’m right-handed, so that’s why I said, well, I went left there. “

The Gunners’ leader said his winner was like “Wrighty in the 90s” when he told great Arsenal player Ian Wright, licking the action of the BBC studio at Wembley.

Wright described Aubameyang’s impact as “amazing finishes from the top man, the man we needed.”

“He came up with the merchandise,” added the former England international.
