Aubameyang, it’s not luck


By: Manu Tournoux

Author of a double on Thursday against Villarreal, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang assured after the match that his magnificent lob on the second goal was intentional.

Olympique de Marseille is unstoppable. For the fourth match with Jean-Louis Gasset on the bench, the Ciel et Blanc won 4-0 at the Vélodrome against Villarreal in 8e first leg of the Europa League final.

And once again, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was the main architect of this victory, with two goals, the first from a penalty and the second from a brilliant inspiration from a tight angle, the former Stéphanois finding the opposite corner of Pepe Reina d ‘a superb lob. A goal so magnificent that some thought the Gabonese wanted to cross.

“The first thing I see is Pepe Reina advanced, so I tell myself I’ll try the lob, he confided after the match at the microphone of RMC. I have success but that’s how it is, we take it. It’s voluntary, totally, 100%. You can see that ‘Isma’ (Ismaïla Sarr, Editor’s note) cuts at the near post and if I had wanted to put him, I would have crossed at the first but the first thing I saw was Pepe Reina advanced , so I said to myself, I’ll give it a try. Gorgeous! There is success in the gesture but it is intentional. »
