Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang feels he has ‘changed’ since being handed the Arsenal captaincy and admitted it has improved his attitude.
The Gabon international confessed he was ‘sometimes a little bit less concerned on certain games’ before being handed the extra responsibility but now gives ‘everything in every single game’.
Aubameyang took over as captain a year ago and was instrumental in helping his side pick up silverware in the FA Cup and Community Shield.
And he feels it has helped him develop as a person and a player.
“I think [I have changed], yeah,” he told Arsenal’s matchday programme.
“Because you feel a lot of responsibilities and I think I am trying to give everything in every single game.
“I think before maybe, I don’t know, it was not done on purpose but maybe sometimes I was a little bit less concerned on certain games.
“But now I am just focusing on every game and trying to give my best. Even if I’m on the bench I try to scream and help my team-mates, so yeah I think it’s changed me.”
