Big news in Dortmund as our star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been nominated for the Ball D’or award. The award is presented to the best player in the world yearly. It recently was considered by FIFA as it’s top award but since that has changed when FIFA restarted it’s own best player award.

It is no surprise that Aubameyang has been nominated. After leading the Bundesliga in scoring last season with an insane 31 goals Aubameyang has continued to impress so far this season. Adding in his goals in the Pokal, UCL and for Gabon and Aubameyang really built his case this year for being the worlds best striker.

In total there are 30 players nominated, all some of the best in the world. Aubameyang probably won’t beat out the likes of Ronaldo or Messi but it’s still great to see BVB talent get recognized on the highest level. Good job Aubameyang!
