Why Aubameyang Was Axed From BVB Squad Again

Africa's record scorer in Bundesliga history, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, is once again in the headlines for the wrong reasons after being axed from Borussia Dortmund's latest matchday squad.

The 28-year-old, who only needs two more goals to reach 100 Bundesliga strikes, was suspended from Dortmund's squad for their clash with Wolfsburg, which they drew 0-0, on Sunday.

"Yesterday, after the team training, the team had a joint meal and afterwards an important team briefing that did not only concern today's match but also more general aspects, like our common goals and a code of conduct – and he failed to appear," the club's sporting director, Michael Zorc, explained, as quoted by ESPN.

"We held very intense talks with him today and ultimately suspended him. Obviously, also monetary sanctions will ensue. Tomorrow, the coach will welcome him back in training."

Some speculate that Aubameyang's latest behaviour could be a plot to force a move away from the club amid reports linking him with Chinese clubs and Arsenal, and Zorc did not rule out the possibility of the Gabon international's departure.

"Currently, I don't know what is going through his mind," he added:

"I do not recognise him anymore, I have to frankly say. Over the years, he was always an extroverted guy but also always served as a prime example for professionalism. He has always worked disciplined and professionally but I cannot detect that at the moment.

"His explanation that he had forgotten the team meeting does not count in my eyes.

"Again, it's not always easy for us to deal with that. After all, he has a hand in about 50% of our goals but at some point certain behaviour is no longer tolerable."

This is the second time this season that Aubameyang has been suspended by his club, having had a similar issue in November 2017 as well.
