Aubameyang moved from Borussia Dortmund to the Emirates in January for £56million and said he wanted to be like Henry, who is Gunners’ all-time leading goalscorer.
“I would say [he is like] Thierry Henry with his quality of runs, but it’s a bit too early to compare him to the best player ever who played here.
“He has played one game. But it’s a good example to follow.
“His finish was brilliant. His finishing is good. You don’t score by coincidence for so many years, if you score many goals. Even in five-a-side he’s able to score goals, so when the guys can repeat that at the top level it means they have that quality.
