The pair were rightly drafted in due to their vast experience with London culture – with Bellerin moving to the city at the age of 16 and transforming from a Catalan boy to more of a Londoner than a lot of people born and raised in the English capital.
Iwobi has lived there since the age of four too, so he’s ideally suited to giving Arsenal’s new men a crash course in London slang.
And Aubameyang’s reaction to the word ‘peng’ made it all worthwhile.
They go over some other words too, including ‘mad ting’, ‘peak’ and ‘swag’, but their explanation of ‘peng’ and Aubameyang’s understanding of it is the best bit:
The players looked relaxed ahead of their Europa League last-16 first leg tie with AC Milan tomorrow night in Italy.
Arsene Wenger and his side are under pressure after a run of disappointing results, with Brighton running out 2-1 winners over them at the weekend the most recent.
But they’ve got an opportunity to restore some pride with a big performance and result tomorrow night – and they’ll need players like Mkhitaryan will be on top of their game if they’re to come out with a win. Unfortunately for Arsenal, though, Aubameyang won’t be involved as he’s cup-tied.
