Borussia Dortmund manager Peter Stoger has explained how Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang forced his move to the Premier League during the penultimate transfer window in January.
Stoger spoke about the Gabonese international star in an interview with popular German news portal Bild via teamtalk.
According to him, the 29-year-old didn’t train well and also skipped team meetings in his bid to secure a move away from the German Bundesliga outfit.
He further pointed out that there was nothing he could do to stop the former Saint Etienne star from moving to Arsenal during last January’s transfer window.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sealed a club-record move to Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund in January.
The North London giants reportedly paid around £56m (€63m) for his services.
Since his move to Arsenal, Aubameyang has been in fantastic goalscoring form for his club.
He has scored 19 goals in 26 games for Arsenal.
Aubameyang is currently the joint leading goalscorer in the Premier League alongside Chelsea forward Eden Hazard after bagging seven goals in eight starts and two substitute appearances for the Gunners.
His latest strike came in the 2-2 draw with London rivals Crystal Palace in their Premier League clash on Sunday afternoon.
He has now scored five goals in his last three league outings.
