Mesut Ozil has defended Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after the Germany international criticisms of his goal celebrations.
The Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos hit out at players who he deems over-celebrate with masks and the like, name-checking Aubameyang in the process.
“I find it very silly,” he told his Einfach mal Luppen podcast. “Even worse is if there are any objects hidden in their socks. Aubameyang once celebrated and took out a mask. That’s where it ends with me.
“I don’t think that’s a good role model, either. What nonsense.”
Aubameyang responded by asking his followers: “Does Toni Kroos have kids? Just to remember I did [dress up] for my son few times and will do it again.”
He then followed up a few hours later with a picture of himself and Marco Reus celebrating wearing Batman and Robin masks, tweeting: “Send Toni Kroos congratulations for his three kids cordially your Batman and Robin.”
Now Ozil has entered the fray, defending his Gunners team-mate with a simple tweet describing Aubameyang’s Black Panther celebration.
He tweeted: “The best goal celebration!
