Henry and Wright comparisons too early for Aubameyang
Arsenal hotshot Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says it's too early to start comparing him to club legends Ian Wright and Thierry Henry.
The Gabon international has been a huge hit at the Emirates Stadium since his switch from Borussia Dortmund in January and took his tally for the Gunners to 22 in 32 appearances with his brace in Sunday's 4-2 win over Tottenham.
Aubameyang sits atop the Premier League goalscoring charts with 10 strikes this season and now has the remarkable record of having scored with his last 10 efforts on target.
The 29-year-old's lethal form in front of goal has lead to comparisons with Arsenal's top two leading goalscorers in Henry and Wright, who netted 228 and 185 times respectively during their stints in north London.
Aubameyang say now is not the time to start talking about him alongside two of the greats of the club, believing he has a lot more work to do before forcing his way into that conversation.
"When you break records, it is always good for you to remember after your career, it’s good to write in your papers!" Aubameyang told Arsenal's website.
"But it’s tough to achieve these goals because [Henry and Wright] did a lot of things for the club and scored a lot of goals.
"I don’t know if you can compare me to them because they are legends already, I have a lot of work to do to achieve their goals.
"I am here and I am trying to do my best to achieve their goals."
