PSG coach Ancelotti impressed by Saint-Etienne's Aubameyang

The former Rossoneri boss remembers the Gabon international from his time in charge at San Siro and revealed that he always felt the forward was "very talented"
Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti has claimed that he has not been in the least bit surprised by the quality of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's recent performances for Saint-Etienne, claiming he never doubted the striker's potential.

The Gabon international was named Ligue 1's Player of the Month for February on the back of a goalscoring spree, and is now underlining just why AC Milan elected to sign him as a teenager.

Ancelotti coached Aubameyang for a season before leaving the Rossoneri to take charge of Chelsea in 2009 but the forward made a big impression on the Italian.

"At the time, he was a young player at Milan and I remember he showed good quality," the PSG boss is quoted as saying by RMC. "Right now, he is now proving that he's very talented."

Aubameyang joined Saint-Etienne last summer after failing to make a single Serie A appearance for Milan.
