Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang 'proud' of AFOTY nomination
One of the Bundesliga's sharpest strikers, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored 13 league goals for Borussia Dortmund in the 2013/14 season, and he netted against Bayern Munich in August 2014 as Dortmund won the German Super Cup for the second successive season.
On the international scene, the 25-year old scored a double for Gabon against Burkina Faso in October as his nation made a strong start to Africa Cup of Nations qualifying. On his nomination, Aubemeyang says "it's amazing today to be where I am, and be nominated for this prize, because when I was young, it was just a dream".
