Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has revealed he has a special ritual which he only does ahead of matches against Tottenham Hotspur.

The former Borussia Dortmund player is known for his range of different hair styles and has one up his sleeve which he keeps especially for derby day.

Ahead of the North London derby matches against Spurs, the Gunners forward visits the hairdresser and gets a star shaved into the side of his head.

“I do the star only against Tottenham. Always,” Aubameyang told their official Facebook channel.

“Yeah, before the game with Tottenham I always do a star.”


While Aubameyang may be focused on his hair when preparing to face Spurs, he may wish to concentrate more on his penalty technique.

Hugo Lloris’ last minute penalty save from Aubameyang in the Premier League match between the two teams proved to vital.  

The Gabon forward’s miss ended up costing Arsenal a victory and a place in the top four and qualification for this season’s Champions League after Spurs pipped them by a single point.
