Klopp worked with Aubameyang at Borussia Dortmund, and the German coach will come up against the 30-year-old Gabon international striker on Saturday evening when Liverpool take on Arsenal at Anfield in the Premier League.
Klopp told The Guardian about Aubameyang: “Auba has no real weakness apart from his fashion sense.
“It is four years since I worked with him and we are not really in contact any more but he was my player so I follow his career. I like him as a person so I am happy that it has worked out really well.”
Klopp added: “I have to say his finishing is incredible. Combine that with his speed and it makes for a really interesting opponent.
“Now he is playing on the wing again in a 4‑2‑3-1 which means he has to defend as well, but he is ready for that. He is a really good player.”
Aubameyang is one of the best strikers in the Premier League and is a key figure at Arsenal.
During the 2018-19 campaign, Aubameyang made 30 starts and six substitute appearances in the Premier League for the North London outfit, scoring 22 goals and providing five assists in the process, according to WhoScored.
While Liverpool will be favourite for this evening’s match, Arsenal have started the season strongly, and Unai Emery’s side will know that they have the firepower to unsettle the Reds’ defence.
