Bayern Coach Slams 'Selfish' Aubameyang

Bayern Munich Coach Slams 'Selfish' Aubameyang

By SL International - Jan 20, 2018 10:00 AM

Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes has hit out at African superstar Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for being 'selfish', and claims he would never sign the striker.

The Gabon international has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal this month in a deal reportedly worth €60 million.

The striker was suspended last weekend for disciplinary reasons, and was left out of the squad for Friday night's clash with Hertha Berlin.

"That exists all along, but at the moment there are totally different dimensions, I see that very critically.

"I think footballers are very privileged, all the more if you see how hard many people have to work for their salary. So, I think professional ethics and morals belong to this. You have to see what's going on in the society.

"Things which happened with Aubameyang and [Ousmane] Dembele I see very critically. The clubs which sign those players have to be aware; they [Aubameyang and Dembele] could do the same to them.

"I would refuse to sign such players. Football is a team sport; you can't just be selfish and follow your own goals. You have to think about the fans as well.

"We have to pay attention so that the fans don't turn their backs on us and football.

"If I see that Arsenal was not really successfully in the last years but their tickets became more and more expensive, that's a problem. In Anderlecht our fans protested against the ticket prices - and they were totally right."

Nonsensical comment from the Bayern Manager. When they bought players like Lewadonski using the same fashion, and Reus too, it was okay. Now that an African players wants to do the same by going to another team, it's now problematic!! Go to hell Mr Bayern coach or Manager or whatever they call you. You are still in the past. Neymar did it, Sanchez just did it, and the list goes on.

These earopean coaches expects African players to stay for peanuts, yet they don't say anything when earopean players move! Dembele and auba needed a pay hike and new challenge! What's the fuss old man?

This Bayern Coach talks nonsense football is all about security in terms of finance so just because this boy is an African he is deemed selfish when citing what he is worth it. No no its not on Mr Bayern Coach...Messie, Ronaldo and lately Phillipe Courtinho are not selfish because they are South American and Europians?
