El Borussia Dortmund ha multado a Aubameyang por el caso de la máscara.

Last weekend, Borussia Dortmund faced Schalke 04 in the Ruhr Derby and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang did what he does when he scored to put BVB 1-0 up in the second half.

He celebrated by whipping out a mask with the Nike logo on it and putting it over his head and for that, he has been reportedly fined €100,000 with other reports suggesting it was closer to €50,000.

The CEO of Borussia Dortmund, Hans-Joachim Watzke said it "was silly and this time it will be more expensive" before saying that the club have had a chat with the striker who has been linked with a move away now for quite some time.

The club are sponsored by PUMA and have their kits made by Nike's rival, which PUMA are said to be not happy about.

Nike sponsor

The mask is part of a Nike promotion named "The Masked Finisher" and it is the second time Aubameyang has donned the Nike sign recently after he arrived onto the field with a red logo of the sports company died into his hair.

Aubameyang replied to DW Sports' tweet about the fee of €100,000 with his own figure, although it would be hard to believe that he was in fact fined €100 million.
