Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang reveals touching tribute he always made vs Tottenham

When Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was playing for Borussia Dortmund, he had a habit of saluting his friend Son Heung-Min whenever he found the net against Tottenham. The Arsenal striker would score twice against Spurs in both Premier League clashes last season and enjoyed some memorable occasions at the Emirates Stadium. But while they were rivalries on the pitch, Aubameyang had a reason to celebrate whenever he scored against the north London club – his former Borussia Dortmund teammate was playing for Spurs at the time and the Arsenal captain got into the habit of saluting his friend after finding the net. Now that Son is enjoying a fine start to life at Spurs following an impressive summer transfer window where he signed for £22m from Bayer Leverkusen – as well as being named as South Korea’s best footballer – let’s take a look back at their friendship…

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has revealed he always made a touching tribute during matches against Tottenham as a player

Aubameyang has revealed he always made a touching tribute during matches against Tottenham as a player.

The Gabon international scored twice against Spurs in both Premier League clashes last season, and enjoyed some memorable occasions at the Emirates Stadium.

Aubameyang had a reason to celebrate whenever he scored against the north London club, with his goals coming from different angles and distances but always causing an upset when they were scored.

In the 7.45pm kick-off, Aubameyang struck twice to help Arsenal edge past Tottenham 2-1 in a Premier League encounter.

The 29-year-old scored with both feet and also chipped in with a well-taken header for his second goal of the afternoon. It was that kind of day for Aubameyang on Saturday afternoon as he fired Arsenal into an impressive 3-0 lead at half time thanks to goals from Alexis Sanchez (who should have had four), Danny Welbeck and Mesut Ozil.

Aubameyang then added another two more before half-time when he tapped home Aaron Ramsey’s low cross after some good work from Granit Xhaka down left hand side channel just before coming off at full time!

When asked about his relationship with Son, Aubameyang said: “He’s a good friend. He’s a great guy and I love him for everything he does on the pitch.”

Aubameyang also admitted that he was happy when Son scored 20 goals in one game and 100 goals in another.

“I did it because he was my friend,” Aubameyang told ESPN FC. “He was always there, supporting me.”

Recently Son netted 20 goals for Spurs, becoming only the third Asian to score more than 20 goals in Europe’s top five leagues after ex-Everton man Yannick Bolasie and Shinji Kagawa. The South Korean then notched his 100th goal for Spurs when he found the net against Leeds United.

The striker has been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane this summer but Tottenham have rejected several bids from Inter Milan and Valencia as they look to keep hold of their star man.

Conclusion

Aubameyang was not the only Arsenal star to salute his former teammate. Mesut Ozil also saluted Son when he scored against Tottenham in the Premier League and the midfielder later shared a picture of the two together with another Spurs player
