⚽ Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to "create his own history" and break the No 9 curse at Chelsea. Can he really break the curse?

Thomas Tuchel has backed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to “create his own history” and break the No 9 curse at Chelsea.


Aubameyang scored 79 goals in 95 appearances under Tuchel at Dortmund, before switching to Arsenal in 2018.

The Gabon striker was stripped of the Gunners captaincy by Mikel Arteta in December 2021 amid disciplinary issues however, before moving to Barcelona in January.

Chelsea boss Tuchel joked earlier this summer that his players were scared of the No 9 shirt, with the striker’s jersey left vacant after Romelu Lukaku’s loan return to Inter Milan.


Lukaku, Tammy Abraham, Gonzalo Higuain, Alvaro Morata and more have all failed to make Chelsea’s No 9 shirt their own.

But Tuchel hailed Aubameyang for having the bravery to take on that challenge.

“Auba is not afraid of the past and what a number means,” said Tuchel. "He is ready to fight to create his own history, taking the number nine means he is brave enough.


Auba thrives under Tuchel :fire:
Auba has good records under tuchel right from Dortmund, and I think he can perform the same magic he performed at Dortmund for Chelsea also, Believe Auba and tuchel have connection someway
