Aubameyang Explains Black Panther Celebration

Not only are Arsenal into the Europa League quarter-finals, but in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, they also have the owner of this season’s greatest goal celebration.

The former Dortmund striker busted out a Black Panther match to mark his second goal of tonight’s 3-0 triumph over Rennes in the Europa League round of 16.

Aubameyang opened the scoring before Ainsley Maitland-Niles added a second and the Gabonese forward rounded out the win with a second half effort, which is wear he went full blown Wakanda.

Masks were very much a part of Auba’s repertoire at Dortmund, where he morphed into Spiderman and Batman on separate occasions after scoring and, after bagging against Manchester United at the weekend, fans expected the Gabonese hitman to bring out a mask in celebration.

However the mask was nowhere to be seen and instead was saved for continental competition.

The reason behind the celebration was because Auba not only wanted a new mask, but wanted one that represented him.

“I just moved house and I found it but I want to change. I want a new mask, need something that represents me.”

However, not everyone appreciated the celebration, the type of which is prohibited by FIFA (of course it f*cking is. The absolute f*cking squares).

The Wakanda salute earned Auba a yellow card, ridiculously.

FIFA rules state, “If a player covers his face with a mask or other similar when celebrating a goal: this is an unnecessary and excessive display of celebration.”

What a load of sh*t.
