You have to be pretty confident of scoring to celebrate a goal by popping on a pre-packed face mask for the cameras, but that’s something that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang used to do when he was at Borussia Dortmund.
A prolific scorer during his time at the Westfalenstadion, the Gabon international once marked a strike against Ruhr derby rivals Schalke, by grabbing a Batman mask he’d placed behind the goal before kick-off.
Just for good measure, he even packed a spare for Marco Reus to take part.
On other occasions, he’s sported a Spiderman mask and a balaclava thing that Nike concocted as part of a marketing stunt.
So far, the striker hasn’t gone to such extravagant lengths since moving to Arsenal, but he’s not ruling it out in the future.
“We will see, it depends on my mood,” Auba told Sky Sports when asked about his flirtation with choreographed celebrations.
“I remember the derby when I took the mask of Batman in Dortmund, I had the idea in the morning.
“If I feel good, maybe why not. I have a good feeling now so maybe, we will see.”
Always eager to lend a hand to extrovert athletes in their moment of need, we had a think about what masks might suit Auba.
