There was a lovely moment at the end of Borussia Dortmund 4-2 victory over Bayern Munich in the German Super Cup. As the Dortmund players sat, celebrated and danced in front of their adoring fans at the Signal Iduna Park, new recruit Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang walked up to the netting that separate the fans from the pitch. Over a dozen supporters were perched on the fencing with Aubameyang gesturing to one in particular. The fan in question threw down a Spiderman mask which the striker picked up, put on and posed for 80,000 cheering fans.
Aubameyang returned the mask to its owner as Dortmund welcomed their new fan favourite.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is known for his quirky celebrations with the mask, from his days at Saint-Etienne in France and Germany looks set to follow suit. He is not the first though to pull off the web-weaving trick with Newcastle United's winger Jonas Gutierrez possessing an endless stock of Spiderman masks underneath his shorts. Prior to these two, Fulham's former striker Facundo Sava built a reputation for his extravagant goal celebrations. Every time the Argentine scored, a disguise straight out of the Mask of Zorro series would be pulled from his sock and placed over his eyes.
