Arsenal’s Aubameyang threatens to reveal why he left BVB
Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has posted an eye-catching tweet on Thursday.
Hours before Arsenal’s Europa League tie with Standard Liege, Aubameyang has reacted to Borussia Dortmund’s CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke.
Watzke, in an interview with Suddeutsche Zeitung, suggested that Aubameyang’s move to Arsenal was motivated by money:
Some go to clubs because of this money, where they have not played Champions League for years.
[Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang, who plays great at Arsenal, will probably be warm-hearted when he looks at his bank account, but on Wednesdays will be saddened when he has to watch the Champions League on television.
Aubameyang: Watzke is a clown
In a response posted on Twitter, Aubameyang has labelled Watze a “clown”. He added:
Better for you I never talk about why I really left Dortmund Mr Watzke you such a clown.
I remember that time you said we never gonna sell Ousmane [Dembele] then you saw more than 100M you were the first to take that money.
