Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has made the shortlist for the Ballon D’Or.
France Football have been announcing the names in batches this afternoon, and the 30 year old has been rewarded for his consistent, excellent goalscoring for the Gunners.
He joins the likes of Sadio Mane, Virgil van Dijk, Sergio Aguero, Frenkie De Jong, Kylian Mbappe, Donny van de Beek, Hugo Lloris and …
… hang on …
What kind of chicken feed individual award bullshit is this? Auba should withdraw immediately – he doesn’t need to be tainted with a bookcase ornament from people who think Hugo Lloris is one of the 30 best players in Europe.
A hat-trick tonight against Sheffield United is all the prize he needs, amirite?!
