Following his Footballer Of The Year win at the CAF Awards held in Nigeria this week, Borussia Dortmund and Gabon national team player Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang took to his Twitter account to pay homage to the "grand 9" and his #grandfrère Samuel Eto'o last night after the big brother tweeted this...
Quand l'Afrique célèbre l'excellence... When Africa celebrates excellence... @Aubameyang7 #PlayerOfTheYear2015 🏆 pic.twitter.com/3RX16QXK5F— Samuel Eto'o (@setoo9) January 8, 2016
The young player then tweeted...

"A special thought for @setoo9, quadruple ballon d'or (golden ball) winner full of class who also inspired and encouraged me in my career. Thank you #bigbrother"
To which Samuel replied straightaway...
"Thank you #littlebrother @Aubameyang7"
When Africa's children win, we all win! Congratulations to Pierre-Emerick and to Gabon!
