Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Career

On 2 February 2022, Barcelona reached an agreement for Aubameyang to join the club. Aubameyang signed a contract until 30 June 2025 with an option to agree departure on 30 June 2023. The deal also included a buyout clause of €100 million (£83.4 million). 

Aubameyang made his debut for Barcelona on 6 February 2022, coming on as a substitute in a 4–2 win over Atlético Madrid. On 20 February, he scored his first competitive goal in his fourth match for Barcelona, scoring a hat-trick in a 4–1 away win at Mestalla Stadium over Valencia in a man-of-the-match performance. On 20 March, Aubameyang scored a brace and assisted Ferran Torres in his first El Clásico helping Barcelona to a 4–0 away victory against the league leaders.

On 14 May 2023, Barcelona beat Espanyol in a 4–2 win to secure the 2022–23 La Liga title, meaning Aubameyang claimed the first league title in his career, despite playing just nine minutes for Barca before joining Chelsea in the summer of 2022.

On 2 September 2022, Chelsea announced the signing of Aubameyang to join the club on a two-year contract. Barcelona confirmed the fee was €12 million (£10.3 million). Aubameyang made his Chelsea debut on 6 September, after being named a starter in a 1–0 Champions League defeat to Dinamo Zagreb. On 1 October, he made his league debut for the club and scored his first goal in a 2–1 away win against Crystal Palace.

In the Champions League group stage, he scored two goals in two matches against his former club AC Milan. However, he was later excluded from the 25-man Champions League squad for the knockout stages by coach Graham Potter.

On 21 July 2023, Aubameyang left Chelsea and signed a three-year deal with Olympique de Marseille. On 12 August, he made his debut coming on as a substitute in the 67th minute in a 2–1 win against Stade de Reims. Three days later, he scored a brace against Panathinaikos in the Champions League third qualifying round which gave his team a 2–0 lead; however, Marseille conceded a penalty in the stoppage time which equaled the tie 2–2, before losing 3–5 on penalties to be eliminated from the competition.

Aubameyang was invited to play for Italy U19s after a good season with Dijon, but he debuted for the France under-21 team in February 2009 in a friendly match against Tunisia U21.

Aubameyang was also eligible to play for Spain because he has Spanish nationality. He decided to represent Gabon because his father once captained the team, but he maintains a close relationship with Spain and expressed a desire to play in La Liga before signing for FC Barcelona.

On 25 March 2009, Aubameyang was selected for the Gabon national team and made his debut for the squad. He scored his first goal in a 2–1 victory over Morocco, then scored a goal each in friendly matches against Benin, Togo, Algeria, and Senegal.

Aubameyang was a key member of the Gabon national side that reached the quarter-finals of the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations as co-host of the competition. He netted three goals in total, finishing the tournament as one of the top scorers. On 5 February 2012, he set up the opening goal for his team and hit the post in the quarter-final against Mali. However, the match ended 1–1 after extra time and Aubameyang had his penalty saved in the shootout to decide the game.

In July 2012, Aubameyang represented Gabon at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. He scored in the team’s opening game against Switzerland, which was Gabon’s first-ever Olympic goal, and would also prove to be Gabon’s only goal of the tournament. They were eliminated in the group stage.

On 15 June 2013, Aubameyang scored a hat-trick of penalty kicks in Gabon’s 4–1 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying win over Niger. He then scored a brace against Burkina Faso in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations Qualification.[citation needed]

Aubameyang captained Gabon at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations, scoring the team’s opening goal of the tournament in their 2–0 win over Burkina Faso on 17 January 2015. He also scored a brace against Mali on 25 March 2015. He is Gabon’s highest goalscorer. He rejected a callup for a pivotal World Cup qualifier at home to the Ivory Coast, which they lost 3–0.

On 25 March 2021, Aubameyang captained Gabon to a 3–0 win at home to DR Congo, scoring the third goal to ensure qualification to the African Cup of Nations to be staged in Cameroon. At that time, he contracted malaria, in which he got a fever and had to be hospitalized.

On 6 January 2022, Aubameyang tested positive for COVID-19 before Gabon’s first game in the African Cup of Nations. Aubameyang withdrew from the tournament a few days later to undergo further medical examinations in England after being diagnosed with heart lesions.

On 18 May 2022, Aubameyang announced his retirement from international football. He made a total of 72 appearances for the Gabon national team and scored 30 goals. However, a year later, he announced he had changed his mind and would return to the national side. He said his decision had been prompted by a meeting with President Ali Bongo Ondimba.
