Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has responded to Toni Kroos's criticisms about the mask celebrations he has performed in the past, insisting that he will continue to do them as they make children happy.

Aubameyang also celebrated a goal for Arsenal in the Europa League in 2019 by putting on a Black Panther mask.

Raul Jimenez has also put on a mask as part of a goal celebration, with the Wolves striker performing a WWE tributeafter his goal in a 3-2 FA Cup semi-final defeat to Watford in 2019.

Indeed, players have been creating their own celebration tributes and routines for years, with Barcelona forward Antoine Griezmann having simulated dance moves from the video game Fortnite in the past.

Real Madrid midfielder and Germany international Kroos has been less than impressed with what he has seen from his fellow professionals, branding the decision to come up with pre-plannedcelebrations "very silly".

Speaking on hisEinfach mal Luppenpodcast, Kroos had said: "I find it (choreographedcelebrations) very silly. Even worse is if there are any objects hidden in their socks. Aubameyang once celebrated and took out a mask. That's where it ends with me. I don't think that's a good role model, either. What nonsense."

Aubameyang was not happy with Kroos's comments, issuing a response on social media defending his decision to celebrate with a mask, insisting he does it to bring a smile to the faces of children who follow football.

The 31-year-old wrote on social media: "By the way - does this Toni Kroos have kids? Justremember, Idid it for my son a few times and Iwill do it again. I wish you have kids one day and make them happy like this junior school pupil. And don’t forget #maskon #staysafe."
