Borussia Dortmund chief Hans-Joachim Watzke has slammed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the manor in which he left the club.
“Aubameyang committed himself to us for this season, especially as a reaction to [Ousmane] Dembele’s transfer,” he told German newspaper FAZ.
“But he also had the notion that we owed him because in 2016 he opted for us and decided against very lucrative offers amid the exits of Hummels, Gundogan and Mkhitaryan.”
When asked why the club eventually sanctioned Aubameyang’s move to Arsenal, Watzke replied: “Because we had the impression there will be no new start for him in the Ruckrunde .[second half of the season].
“Not with the fans, not with the team. Too much had been damaged through his behaviour.”
