Arsenal youngster, Bukayo Saka has come out to explain why Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gave him the “Little Chilli” nickname. He recently revealed that Aubameyang actually gave him the name for his finishing during a training session at London Colney.
According to him, Auba kept saying Little Chilli in French when he scored several goals during a training session until he asked for the meaning one day and got an explanation.
Saka added that Aubameyang is a man of amazing character, and he’ll remain an important player for Arsenal.
His words, “It started from Auba,”
“He said it in French. We’re doing one finishing drill one time in training and he kept saying it, and I kept scoring, I was shooting with so much power and he was calling me little chilli in French [petit piment].”
“I didn’t know what it was. I asked him after and he told it means little chilli. From then on he kept calling me it and then it became a thing, and now it’s a big thing, a lot of people call me it, and make it my nickname.”
“He got me the nice chain he promised he would get me if we won the FA Cup,”
“It started from Auba, it’s a show of how great a character he is and how important he is for me and I’d say for the team in terms of the happiness and the vibes in the dressing room. I love it. It’s unique.”
