Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang hits out at Real Madrid’s Toni Kroos.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has called out Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos on social media and questioned whether he has any kids following comments where he slated the Arsenal striker’s ‘silly’ mask goal celebrations.
Kroos mentioned Aubameyang by name, not only dismissing the flamboyancy of his reaction to scoring a goal but also said such a gesture doesn’t make him a good role model.
After reading the quotes for himself, Aubameyang asked the German star – who has three children – whether he has his own, before insisting he will perform his mask celebrations again for his son.
Aubameyang launched his Twitter tirade alongside a cartoon version of himself drawn by a junior school pupil after the kid was asked to think about what happiness meant to them.

In his interview, Kroos said:
‘I find it very silly. Even worse is if there are any objects hidden in their socks,’
‘Aubameyang once celebrated and took out a mask. That’s where it ends with me.
‘I don’t think that’s a good role model, either. What nonsense.’
Kroos also took aim at Antoine Griezmann, criticising his ‘fidgeting’ celebration which is a reference to the video game Fortnite.
The Madrid star believes footballers should celebrate likes one of his heroes in Gerd Muller, one of Germany’s greatest ever footballers.
‘What I always found sweet was Gerd Muller. He just jumped up, pulled up his pants. That was real joy, nothing big.’
