Career and Achievements
Aubameyang began his senior career at AC Milan, eventually being promoted to the first team in 2008 after impressing as a member of the club’s youth set up where his brothers were a part of as well.
Despite never making any appearances, he had a series of loan spells in France. His loan move to Ligue 1 team Saint-Ettiene was made the transfer permanent in 2011.
During his time at the French club, Aubameyang helped the club win the French Cup and was honoured in the Ligue 1 Team of The Season.
Aubameyang joined Borussia Dortmund in 2013, where he finished as the league’s top goal scorer in the 2016-17 season and won the DFB-Pokal title. He also became the club’s sixth all-time top goalscorer.
In 2018, Aubameyang signed for English team Arsenal in a deal worth £56million (€64million), making him the most expensive Gabonese player of all time and all then breaking the English club’s then transfer record.
In his first full season in England with Arsenal, he won the Premier League Golden Boot which he had shared with Sadio Mané and Mohamed Salah of Liverpool.
He also helped the club reach the finals of Europa League in 2019.
His international career has been stellar as well. Aubameyang made his debut for the Gabon national team in 2009 at just 19. He ranks as their top all-time scorer having registered 25 goals in 63 games.
Auba has featured in three African Cup of Nations and has captained in those tournaments, as well as the 2012 Summer Olympics at London.
For his performances in the AFCON 2015 Aubameyang was named as the African Footballer of the Year. Thus becoming the first Gabonese player to win the award.
Sponsorships and Endorsements
Aubameyang’s main brand affiliation is that of popular American sports brand Nike.
Nike released the Nike Mercurial Superfly 360 ‘GabonPanther’ football cleats, modelled after the Black Panther and Aubameyang which came out in the same year as the release of the Marvel movie Black Panther.
He wore a mask on the pitch in order to promote the boots and the brand as a celebration for his goals in the Europa League.
What cars does Aubameyang drive?
Aubameyang famously drove his £150,000-valued gold Range Rover Sport to the Dortmund airport to complete his move to Arsenal. It is believed that he owns a car collection worth over £1m.
After selling his Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4, Aubameyang bought a new model. He added a black Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 to his collection and dubbing it the Batmobile. This doubles with his famous celebrations on the pitch as various superheroes.
When choosing which car to drive, Aubameyang has plenty of options including two Porsche Panameras and a Ferrari 488 Spider. These sit alongside a Ferrari 458 Italia, a gold Aston Martin DB9 Volante 2 and a gold Audi R8 V10 Plus.
Auba also has a Lamborgini gold Urus which he has driven recently.
There has been a marketing controversy around the Gabonese skipper. Aubameyang got into trouble for showing off his Nike shoes publicly when he was playing with Borussia Dortmund.
The reason he got into so much trouble was that Dortmund was sponsored by Puma, who are rivals of Nike.
However, his Nike endorsement definitely adds to his entire net worth and is currently Nike’s brand ambassador. He has also appeared in their advertisements from time to time on UK television.
