Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang supported Arsenal's young teammate Bukayo Saka to go straight to the top in his football career.
Saka's emergence represented one of the most exciting aspects of a turbulent season for an Arsenal team, which has only remote hopes of qualifying for Europe next season.
The 18-year-old, who recently pledged his long-term future with Arsenal by signing a contract extension, impressed in several different positions, but started in a more offensive role since Kieran Tierney's return to fitness.
He scored his first Premier League goal in Wolves' 2-0 win last weekend and recorded his 12th campaign assist against Leicester midweek with Aubameyang.
And speaking of Saka, the Gabonese international believes his teammate is destined for the top and praised him for his humble nature and willingness to learn from the club's most experienced players.
"He is certainly one of the best, for sure," said the former Borussia Dortmund striker Sky Sports.
“What I like most about him is that he is always listening to advice from us, experienced players. I really like it and he's really humble, he always wants to move on and learn more and try to improve his game, so he's definitely one of the best.
“Sure, I think he's 18, so he has a lot of time, but as I told him, the most important thing is to enjoy it, because at this age being in this club is really special and he just needs to keep going like this to keep improving and I'm sure that it goes from top to bottom. "
About the nickname of & # 39; Little Chilli & # 39; that he gave to Saka, Aubameyang believes he deserves it because of his power and explosive energy.
Asked to elaborate the nickname, he said: “I call him that (Little Chilli), but in French, then it's Petit Piment.
"It's because it's like a little pepper, a lot of energy, a lot of energy and it's very small, so it's funny".
