Salah and Mane were Liverpool’s main men last season, in which they narrowly missed out on winning their first Premier League title.

Between them, the pair scored 44 league goals, with both men finding the back of the net 22 times.

Aubameyang also scored 22 goals in Arsenal’s forgettable 2018-19 season and ended up sharing the Golden Boot with Liverpool’s feared duo.

As much as he wanted the Golden Boot for himself, Aubameyang is happy to have shared it Salah and Mane, who believes are representing Africa in a positive light.

“I’ve been lucky enough to play alongside some really good players throughout my career and Laca [Alexandre Lacazette] is definitely one of them,” the Gabon international said.

“Last season was the first full season that I’d played with another striker like him, and I’m really happy with how well we worked together.

“We have the same vision about football when we talk in the dressing room, the same ideas and the same feelings.

“The fact that we understand each other is the thing that makes the difference in the games.

“That relationship definitely helped me to win the Golden Boot last season. It was a tough year, but I had the chance to score goals, because the team played a great season.

“Of course the last months were not the best in the Premier League, but the whole season, we put in a great effort.

“It meant a lot to win the Golden Boot. I am really happy and proud of it, especially to share the trophy with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.

“I really like these two guys. We are representing Africa so it is a good sign for the continent.

“Africa is in my heart and in my mind, so I’m extremely proud to represent it in the Premier League.

“The African people really love football, like everyone across the world, it makes me very proud to represent Africa in such an amazing way because not everyone gets the chance to play in the Arsenal colours.”

Aubameyang has been linked with a shock move to Manchester United this week but has insisted he has no intention of leaving the Gunners.

“I loved my time at Dortmund but when Arsenal called, I was really excited for the challenge,” he said.

“I’d always admired Arsenal because of the big history and players like Thierry Henry.

"He was always an example for strikers and because I am also fast and score goals, I always looked up to him.

He’s the reason why I took the No 14 shirt. To be honest, when I arrived I actually wanted No.7, but Micki [Henryk Mkhitaryan] had already taken it.

“So I thought, ‘Why not follow in the footsteps of a legend?’ I’m just really proud to wear the 14 shirt and I hope to honour it.”
