Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can’t wait to face his friends in the Europa League quarter-final after Arsenal were drawn against Napoli.
Arsenal’s hero against Rennes, with two goals and a Black Panther goal celebration, couldn’t hide his delight at learning Arsenal would be going up against Carlo Ancelotti’s men.
He took to Twitter to make his feelings clear:
Speaking after the game against Rennes on Thursday night, Auba explained why he opted for a Black Panther mask.
“I needed a mask which represents me,” he told BT Sport. “It’s the Black Panther and in Africa, in Gabon, we call the national team the Black Panthers of Gabon. It represents me so that’s it.”
Auba’s goals took his tally to 22 goals and six assists in 39 games this season.
In all, he has 32 goals (10 assists) in 53 games since he moved to England just over a year ago.
