PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG’S famous Spiderman celebration has just been eclipsed – by a superhero goalscorer jumping into a fence!
Borussia Dortmund striker Aubameyang’s CV of masked celebrations also includes a Batman and Robin double act with team-mate Marco Reus.
But now another footballer, who was previously as anonymous as Clark Kent, has literally leapt into the superhero ranks.

The orange-clad ace has become a “web” sensation after a video of his goal celebration went viral.
What’s more, he did it with no sign of a mask or any of the other fashion-must-haves of your typical superhero.
He simply flung himself into chicken-wire type fencing and tried to grip onto it sideways like Spiderman.
Unfortunately he was as successful at clinging onto the fence as Paris Saint-Germain were at holding onto a 4-0 Champions League lead against Barcelona in the Champions League last-16 two months ago.
Instead, he rebounded into gravel in front of the pitch – but still seemed happy enough.
Aubameyang, in contrast, cut corners on his path to Superhero fame – applying a simple prop rather than a body-contorting flop.
Nonetheless, the Gabon international was fined £43,000 last month by his German club for endorsing his sponsors Nike with a “Masked Finisher” celebration against Schalke.
Dortmund were fuming because their kit supplier is Nike’s rival Puma.
Aubameyeng, 27, immediately denied claims he was cocky by posting on Instagram: “Me arrogant? Come on guys, this is the way I live!
“This is my world, I’m like a kid who enjoys to play football.”
Maybe Dortmund need to create Puma-man to keep Aubameyeng on the straight and narrow.
