Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has apologised to Arsenal fans for a poor season.

The Gunners fell at the semifinal stage of the Europa League against Villarreal last week.

"We struggled to find our rhythm in the first half and didn't give Villarreal enough problems," he wrote in the Gunners' official matchday programme.

"And when we had a chance, the luck wasn't there for us, when I hit the post with the volley and then the header in the second half.

"I thought we started the second half with more energy and put them under pressure, but we just couldn't maintain that drive and ultimately, we just didn't find a way through Villarreal.

"I thought my header was in when it hit the post but it just wasn't going to happen.

"Like I said, we are really upset about going out of the competition at this stage, for ourselves, for the club and most of all for you the supporters.

"It's been such a difficult season for fans and we desperately wanted to give you something positive this season – I'm just so sorry we couldn't do it for you."
