Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has vowed to continue his playboy lifestyle at Arsenal, with fast cars and outlandish clothes part of a £55 million package.
The Gunners broke their transfer record to land the flamboyant Gabon international striker on the final day of the January transfer window.
Pushing through a deal before the deadline allowed Arsene Wenger to bring a proven performer onto his books, but one who had faced criticism for his attitude during a goal-laden spell at Borussia Dortmund .
Arsenal have been quick to shrug off any concerns regarding Aubameyang’s personality, and the 28-year-old insists he will be paying little attention to those quick to question his choices away from the field.
He told the Sunday Mirror : “The clothes, the cars and all that are a bonus. I enjoy living this way.
“I like who I am and it doesn’t matter if other people can’t ­accept that – it goes over my head.
“As they say ‘you only live once’. It’s important to know where you come from and where your roots are – the rest is a big bonus.”
