Aubameyang on rollercoaster Chelsea beginning: Some strange weeks


Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has experienced a rollercoaster start to life with Chelsea.

Aubameyang moved from Barcelona to Stamford Bridge on transfer deadline day but only had the chance to play one game under his former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel before Chelsea parted company with the German.

Graham Potter was quickly installed as our new head coach and against RB Salzburg last Wednesday, Aubameyang made his home bow on the night Potter took charge of the Blues for the first time.

"He's a really positive person," Aubameyang said of Potter.

"He's a great character. We will try to learn with him, and to win as soon as possible. It's going to be easy to adapt. His ideas are very clear.

"It's been some strange weeks for all of us I think, not only me. That's part of life. Everyone knows the relationship I had with Thomas. It's sad when somebody leaves a club, but this is football. You have to adapt quickly at different moments in a season.

"It's a bit of sadness but hopefully better days are coming. When you play for Chelsea, you need results as soon as possible."

Aubameyang has played around an hour in his first two appearances for the Blues.

"I need more time," he told the club's website.

"I'm not 100 per cent fit. It's not easy to play with a mask and with an injury, but hopefully I will get 100 per cent as soon as possible."
