Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang reveals true meaning behind is El Clasico celebration after scoring twice in Barcelona's rout

BARCELONA ace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has revealed the true meaning behind his Dragon Ball celebration in the 4-0 demolition of rivals Real Madrid.

The January transfer arrival is known for his extravagant goal celebrations; from wearing a Batman mask to a black panther one.

But in Sunday's 4-0 win over LaLiga table-toppers Real, Aubameyang showcased a new celebration.

Aubameyang netted a brace and assisted Ferran Torres at the Santiago Bernabeu.

And to celebrate, he went to the sideline, picked up an orange ball, closed his eyes, and touched his forehead.

As the 32-year-old later explained, his intriguing celebration was from the popular manga and anime series Dragon Ball.

He said: "It was a ball from Dragon Ball. With it, you can make a wish.

"I wanted to win and score a goal for my grandparents, who are gone. A friend of mine gave it to me."

The striker later took to Twitter and blasted his critics.

He said: "Hello from the finished player."

Barca boss Xavi is pleased with Aubameyang's instant impact.

The World Cup-winning Spaniard described the striker as "a gift from heaven."

Xavi said: "Well, Auba has been a brilliant gift fallen from the sky for us because he's very positive.

“He reacted very well in the dressing room. He's adapted quickly to what the terms needs and the circumstances we are in.

“He finds space in behind, he can create chances, he scores goals. He works hard for the team.

“He pushes the centre backs and the goalkeeper, so it's a privilege to manage him and we know he's got a lot of goals to give the team.

“I'm very pleased with him individually because he's an example to follow in training and everyone in the squad.”
