With Paolo Maldini hailing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s development, the Borussia Dortmund man was pleased to be acknowledged by his hero.

Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is delighted that his « hero » Paolo Maldini has acknowledged his progress since leaving AC Milan.

Gabon international Aubameyang was on Milan’s books between 2007 and 2011, but he failed to make a first-team appearance before moving to Saint-Etienne.

An impressive stint in France was rewarded with a move to Dortmund, where Aubameyang has established himself as one of Europe’s top forwards and scored 31 Bundesliga goals last season.

Maldini – who was a player at Milan until 2009 – recently conceded that the Serie A giants had failed to recognise the forward’s potential and could not now afford him – something that Aubameyang is pleased with.

« Happy to read that Maldini had some nice words about me, » Aubameyang tweeted, alongside a picture of the pair. « I was watching him like a hero when I was in Milan. »

Aubameyang has scored two goals in three league games so far this season, with Dortmund beginning their Champions League campaign at Tottenham on Wednesday.
