Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was instrumental in Barcelona’s 4-0 win over Real Madrid on Sunday evening.
The Gabonese striker, who joined Barcelona from Arsenal on the last day of the January transfer window and has since stepped down, scored a goal at the Santiago Bernabeu.
He celebrated one of his goals with a special celebration inspired by his favorite animated series according to Diario Sport. It is known as the Super Saiyan act.
“It was a ball from Dragon Ball,” he said after the game. “With it you can make a wish. I wanted to win and score goals for my late grandparents. My friend gave it to me. I thought about it today. ”
The friend Aubameyang referred to was Alejandro Nicolas, a tattoo artist who is said to be very close to the striker.
His relationship with Barcelona dates back to 2015; Nicolas has painted the likes of Jordi Alba, Marc Bartra, David Villa, Ivan Rakitic, Olga Garcia, Natasha Andonova, and Dani Carvajal.
Aubameyang, 32, has scored seven goals in seven La Liga appearances since joining Barcelona. He also provided one assist. His record in the Europa League stands at two of four.
