Did you know? After his trials at AC Milan in 2008, the managers of the Italian 'Seria A' club told Pierre Emerick Aubemyang he wasn't good enough to play top flight football.
You may ask today, what where they looking at? The African boy from a non-footballing country of Gabon, can't just have what it takes to play at the top level. And four times AC Milan loaned out Aubameyang to other french clubs until he finally secured £1 million transfer to Saint Etienne in French Liigue1.
He stats is eye catching, maybe not then, but Aubameyang is better know for speed and quick ball skills...he has clock 30metres in 3.7 seconds playing as a forward and winger...an astonishing quickness in poaching a ball into the goal net as well as winning ball on flight.
Aubameyang profile has continued to rise since he won Coupe la ligue French final in 2013, he joined German Bundesliga side, Boussia Dortumund for €4.2 million
He has won DFL Super Cup twice in 2013 and 2014...and scored a total of 87 goals in all competitions. Although, Aubameyang has played for France U21 team, he won his first cap for his Gabonese national team in 2009, and grew to become the present captain of the national team.
Aubameyang won CAF African Footballer of the Year Award in 2015 and The Guardian ranked him as the ninth best player in the world today. Recently, Dortumund placed £70 million price tag on their jewel striker. Both Real Madrid and Liverpool are already bidding for Aubameyang for possible summer transfer.
