Arsenal star Aubameyang can’t wait to dust off dance moves with new celebrations for special pitchside camera

PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG will have a new novel goal celebration ready for the Premier League restart.

And if Arsenal’s star striker, 30, scores in their re-opening night clash at Manchester City, he must remember where the special TV camera is!

Prem stars will be urged to look for a pitchside ‘celebration’ camera to mark goals.

Aubameyang — who infamously donned a Black Panther mask after scoring against Rennes in the Europa League in March last year — said: “Everybody is happy to be back at training with our mates.

“Now we’re just waiting for the referee’s whistle to start the Premier League again. “I am ready to start scoring goals and have some celebrations.

“But I won’t be able to hug my team-mates so I’ll try to do some dancing stuff if I score.”

As part of the Prem’s Covid-19 plan, broadcasters will be allowed one ‘steadicam’ operator with a camera attached to a harness allowing movement along the sidelines.

But in addition to pre and post-match shots when the Prem returns on June 17, the technician has been nominated to hold a ‘celebration’ camera.

Players will be made aware of the likely position to allow front-on shots.

League bosses have also agreed the lower tiers of stands will be decorated to prevent TV fans viewing banks of empty seats.

Fans at home can watch with or without a special feed allowing them to choose between the real behind-closed-door experience or an artificially enhanced atmosphere.
