When the camera panned to injured striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on Saturday, it was initially unclear if viewers were watching a football match or an episode of Germany's Next Top Model.
Aubameyang, who is known for his style on the pitch, showcased some style off the pitch as well on Saturday, donning a snazzy fur coat and teal hat combination. The opulent outfit caused a massive social media uproar, as fans and analysts could not stop talking about Auba's fashion choice.

This was actually the most common inference about the Gabonese striker's outfit choice.

At the end of the day, Aubameyang and his fashion statement was perhaps the most interesting part of an otherwise boring match. Borussia Dortmund beat Hannover 96, 1-0.
