Fans say same thing as Aubameyang’s security team ‘attack’ Sky Sports’ cameraman to stop Chelsea-bound ace being filmed
PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG’S security man did his best to stop the in-bound Chelsea signing from being filmed.
But it drew the same response from fans, who were confused that it was not reporter Gary Cotterill being silenced.
One said: “Attack the camera man but allow the guy with the mic to interview the player? What sort of logic is this.”
Another added: “You’d rather attack the mic guy and have it on film? Lol.”
One commented: “Lol who is the dork covering up the camera?
“I mean weird ambush on Aubameyang but what does that dude think he’s protecting by covering up the camera.”
The awkward incident followed as Aubameyang, 33, arrived in London ahead of his proposed move to Chelsea.
They struck a deal with Barcelona of £12million with Marcos Alonso, 31, heading the other way.
It sets up a reunion between Aubameyang and Thomas Tuchel, who worked together at Borussia Dortmund.
The striker later left in 2018 to join Arsenal, where he would make 163 appearances, scoring 92 goals and captaining the side.

But following a fallout with manager Mikel Arteta, which saw the forward stripped of the armband and exiled, Aubameyang left.
He saw his Gunners contract terminated, paving the way for a move to Barcelona last January.
The Gabonese international managed 13 goals in 24 matches but Aubameyang is now braced for a return to London.
