Dortmund Recall Aubameyang From Suspension For Tottenham, Insist Player Not For Sale

Borussia Dortmund have recalled striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from suspension and he’s expected to be available for Tuesday’s crucial Champions League clash with Tottenham.

The Gabonese star was dropped ahead of Friday’s match with Stuttgart with reports suggesting that Aubameyang’s partying during the international break and his decision to film an unauthorised video on club premises with a freestyle footballer was responsible for manager Peter Bosz’s decision to punish his star striker.

Dortmund lost 2-1 at Stuttgart, in a fifth Bundesliga game in succession without victory, with Aubameyang also having not scored in his last five games despite netting 15 already for the season.

Chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke expressed the club’s support for coach Bosz’s decision to suspend Aubameyang.

Watzke told Eurosport: “A squad needs rules and, every now and then, you have to sharpen your senses. The decision is up to Peter Bosz and the coach has complete support from all sides.

“Auba is still a great guy. He will be back to normal on Tuesday. But he has no special rights – you have seen that again.”

However Watzke firmly ruled out any prospect that the disciplinary measures could prompt Dortmund into a January sale of their prized asset.

“It’s not about selling a player, that is complete nonsense,” he said. “But you have to sanction things. It’s like a family, you have to step in at some point. But he is our player and remains our player.”
