After guiding Arsenal to a 2-1 victory over Chelsea in the FA Cup final, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang struggled with the resulting silverware as he was filmed dropping the historic trophy.
But just as theGunners were about to enjoy lifting the iconic piece of silverware for a record 14th time, the Arsenal star promptly dropped it, much to the humourof those watching on.
Thankfully, the cup seemed to avoid any serious damage as Aubameyang eventually lofted the title over his head in celebration.
Arsenal manager Mikel Artetasaw the lighter side of Aubameyang's trophy drop, taking it as a chance to promise him there will be more silverware to come at the Emirates should he decide to re-sign.
"It can happen, Ithink it happened a few years back as well," Arteta said.
"He needs more experience with trophies!We can get him used to that."
Gunners defender Rob Holding also saw the trophy drop coming, noting that Aubameyang had failed to properly remove the cup from its podium.
"I saw himwalking with the bottom bit attached and I was like, 'you need to take that off!'.It seems the trend now anyway for people to drop the trophy," Holding said.
The 31-year-old has struggled to win many club trophies during his career, having won oneDFB Pokal and two DFL Supercups with Borussia Dortmund. While atSaint-Etienne, his single piece of silverware was theCoupe de la Ligue in 2013.
On an individual level, Aubameyang has never struggled to shine and has won the Golden Boot in both the Bundesliga and Premier League. He was also named the African Footballer of the Year in 2015.
