William-Fils "Willy" Aubameyang (born 16 February 1987) is a French-born Gabonese professional footballer who plays as a midfielder. He currently plays for Kray.

Club career[edit]

Aubameyang joined AC Milan from Triestina in 2005.[1] Over his first three seasons at the club, he played in their youth teams, though appearing as an unused substitute for the first team in some Serie A and Coppa Italia games, as well as playing several pre-season friendlies (once even scoring against Juventus).[2] On 20 December 2007, he eventually made his official debut in a Coppa Italia match against Catania.[3]

Aubameyang spent the following seasons on various loan spells: at Avellino in 2008–09,[4] at Belgian side Eupen in 2009–10,[5] and at Monza in the first half of the 2010–11 season.[6]

In January 2011, he was signed permanently by Scottish Premier League club Kilmarnock, after a successful trial.[7] He scored his first and only goal for the club in a 1-1 draw with Motherwell.[8] In summer 2011, Aubameyang's short term contract with Kilmarnock expired and he has since left the club.

International career[edit]

Aubameyang has been called up by the Gabonese national team since 2009.

Personal life[edit]

His father Pierre is a former Gabonese international; while his two brothers Catilina and Pierre-Emerick are footballers too and have both played at Milan like him.
