Just what Borussia Dortmund don’t need right now.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been on fire for BVB this season.
He scored 15 goals in 12 games, including two Bundesliga hat tricks… Although he has since struggled through 476 goalless minutes.
But the latest news coming out of the Westfalenstadion is that Aubameyang has been suspended by the club for ‘disciplinary reasons’.
Come on, Pierre.
The club confirmed he would miss the match against Stuttgart on Twitter after a supporter was questioning his situation.
This isn’t the first time Gabon’s record goal scorer has been on the naughty step.
He was suspended by the club last year for an extra curricular trip to Milan during the season.
However, Aubameyang was dumbfounded by this suspension.
“I didn’t turn up later for training,” he told Bild. “After my trip to Milan I could understand my suspension because I ignored an announcement that time.
“This time I really can’t understand it.”
Dortmund were leading the Bundesliga but have dropped to third after losing three of their last four league games.
The much-coveted speedster’s latest indiscretion could signal the beginning of a January exit.
A whole host of major clubs have longed for his signature since he lit up the Bundesliga after Jurgen Klopp signed him from St. Etienne.
The striker was linked to Chelsea, Man City and PSG in the summer and it seems likely he could push for a move this winter.
