The Gunners skippers has opened up partially about his external family and reveals he has something in common with Ghanaian teammate Thomas Teye Partey

Arsenal captain Pierre Emerick Aubameyang has made a shocking revelation ahead of his side’s Premier League game against Leicester City on Saturday.

The influential striker told English press on Friday when asked how he is faring with former Atletico Madrid and Ghana star Thomas Teye Partey who joined Arsenal on transfer deadline day, Aubameyang revealed that although he is widely known to be a native of Gabon,  he has some of his roots coming from West African country Ghana.

“My family is from Gabon but I also have some roots in Ghana where Thomas [Teye Partey] is from so we are family too!'” Aubameyang said with a lot of confidence despite declining to open up further.

“It is good for some of our younger players as well to have a player like him, of his calibre at training. They will learn a lot from him,” he added.

Aubameyang and Partey are likely to start a Premier League match together for the first time since the latter made his debut as a late substitute in Arsenal’s 1-0 away defeat to Manchester City last weekend.

On Thursday, Partey was adjudged Arsenal’s Man of the Match in their 2-1 away win over Austria Vienna in the Europa League and would be expected to replicate that performance.
