CAF congratulates Aubameyang on 100 career goals


Gabonese hit-man Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has reached 100 career goals.

The reigning Confederation of African Football (CAF) Footballer of the Year’s most recent goal came in a league fixture against TSG 1899 Hoffenhei, when he scored Dortmund’s third goal in a 1 – 3 victory.

CAF congratulated Aubameyang in two tweets, the first one gave a breakdown of the goals he has scored so far. He has scored 51 times for Dortmund (22 this season alone) he bagged 37 goals during his days with French Ligue 1 side Saint-Étienne.

He has 8 Dijon goals and 2 goals each for Lille and Monaco – 2. Career goals do not include goals he has scored for Gabon.

CAF’s second tweet to the 2015 football king was simple and straight to the point ‘Keep it up,’ it said; with an accompanying picture of the player celebrating a goal for Gabon.

There has been speculation around the player, that he is likely to move to bigger clubs but Dortmund has remained adamant that ther are not selling him.Since he starred for the Gabonese national side in 2009, the 26-year old has made 45 appearances and scored 19 goals.
