Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has called Hans-Joachim Watzke that a”clown” after the Borussia Dortmund chief executive suggested he moved to Arsenal for cash.
Aubameyang scored 98 league goals in 144 looks for Dortmund but joined the side and Arsenal to get a then-club-record fee, known to be # 60m, in January 2018 together.
For turning out with Arsenal rather than their Champions League watzke appeared to have a thinly-veiled dig at the 30-year-old.
As per various reports, Watzke told Suddeutsche Zeitung:”Obviously it’s challenging to keep a participant in the face of such amounts. Where they’ve not played Champions League for many ages, some go to nightclubs due to this cash.
“Aubameyang, who plays great at Arsenal, will most likely be warm-hearted when he looks at his own bank accounts, but on Wednesdays will be saddened if he has to watch the Champions League on television.”
However, considering joining the team Aubameyang, that has scored 49 goals for Arsenal, hit labelling Watzke that a hypocrite over the sale of Ousmane Dembele of Dortmund to Barcelona in 2017.
“Better for you I don’t talk about why I really left Dortmund Mr Watzke, you such a man,” he tweeted.
“I recall that time you said we never likely to market Ousmane then you saw more than 100M, you were the very first to take that money. Don’t speak about cash please!!! Leave me pls.”
