Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang admits that it will be "weird" without Arsene Wenger at the club, but is pleased with the appointment of Unai Emery.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has described Unai Emery as a "very good coach" and says that he is ready to get going under the new Arsenal manager.

The Gunners unveiled the 46-year-old on Wednesday afternoon, officially marking the end of the Arsene Wenger era in North London.

Aubameyang only played under Wenger for four months, but the Gabon international admits that it will be "weird" having a new manager in the Emirates Stadium dugout come August.

Emery arrives on the back of guiding Paris Saint-Germain to a domestic treble, which was not enough to save his job due to a last-16 exit in the Champions League.

Speaking to RMC Sport, Aubameyang said: "It's a very good coach, it's never easy in Paris, there's a lot of pressure. I know he did a great job in Seville and Paris.

"Of course it's weird that the coach goes after 22 years. It's life, we have to move forward, we'll have to get everyone thinking to work hard to compete with the best."

Aubameyang has made a big impression during his half-season with Arsenal, scoring 10 times in 13 Premier League outings.
