Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang deleted his tweet responding to Gary Lineker’s assessment following Arsenal’s 1-1 draw with Southampton.
Lineker tweeted: “All strikers have spells without goals. The best don’t let it affect them. Aubameyang is one of best and now he’s scored the goals will flow again.”
The Arsenal striker responded with the sideways eyes emoji, but Aubameyang later deleted the tweet, much to the bemusement of his followers.
Aubameyang then tweeted, alongside a picture of himself against Southampton: “We know this is not enough but we keep believing and working hard that’s it.”

And then responded to a tweet from Eddie Nketiah, saying: “My bro thanks and we go to fight.”
Aubameyang was recently fined £7,500 for social media posts that tarnished the “honour and image” of the Confederation of African Football.
The Gabon striker and his international team-mates spent the night on the floor of an airport in Gambia ahead of an African Cup of Nations qualifier last month.
Aubameyang posted pictures of himself on the floor alongside the caption: “Nice job CAF, it’s as if we were back in the 1990s.”
He later added: “This will not demotivate us but people need to know and CAF need to take responsibility. [It is] 2020 and we want Africa to grow but this is not how we will get there.”
CAFs disciplinary committee ruled that the content was offensive and degrading. Gambia’s FA was also fined £75,000, half of which was suspended for 24 months.
