Bio Information

Name: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Height: 1.85 m

Weight: 77 kg

Nationality: Gabon

Club: AS Saint-Étienne

Contarct until:   30.06.2016

Price: 10.000.000 €


  The Gabonese striker started his career in the Italian grand AC Milan playing only for the junior formations in the well known AC Milan Primavera. At 19 years of age he has been sent on loan at the French club Dijon for a year. The young forward make 39 appearances and score 10 goals. The next two loans were in the League 1 teams Lille (2009–2010) and AS Monaco (2010–2011) where he respectively 24 and 23 games and score 2 goals in both of the seasons. On 31.01.2011 he was sent on loan to AS Saint-Étienne (14 games and 2 goals scored) and he was bought by The Greens on 01.01.2012 for 1.800.000 million euros.  This was the turning point in his career. The Gabonese made a wonderful debut by scoring hattrick against Lorient (22.02.12). The most amazing was that Aubameyang scored the first goal with his left foot, the second with a header and the third one with his right foot. Now he is the leading star of the well performing team in League 1. In the last two seasons he made 75 appearances and scored 39 goals and 27 assists, terrific stats for a stricker.

  With the national shirt of Gabon the striker made 29 appearances, scored 8 goals and made 5 assists.

  Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s preferred foot is right, but he is definitely very good with his left, too. He is very skilful and technical gifted player. Very quick with and without the ball. He has good composure in the penalty area and is very calm in front of the goal.  The most useful part of his game, if you are a coach, is his combinativeness. Despite being a striker he creates a lot of situation for his partners and makes a lot of assists.

Injury status:

  He did not miss even one game through the season, which means that Aubameyang is very solid and not an injury prone player.

Clip with skills:

Game Rating

Football Manager 2013: 4 stars. After development of his abilities he will be one of the best strikers.

FIFA 13: Rating 79, potential 84. That means Aubameyang is near the top strikers in the game


Best ability: Dribbler - he is very good with his feet. He loves to get past opponents in one on one situations. This ability helps him to play as winger, as a supportive striker or even as a lone striker.

Weakness: Crossing – when playing as winger or supportive striker you have to cross the ball and Aubameyang is weak at this point. He has to work on his crossing ability in order to develop as a player.

Potential team playing for: Valencia, Napoli, Borussia Dortmund or Liverpool.

AF Rating: I evaluate his AF Rating to 8. This means that he can become successful transfer for top teams in top leagues at very good price. The negative points are he is something like bighead with all of his shiny earrings and boots. He has abilities to work on too.
