The Gunners striker has responded to the Westfalenstadion chief’s recent claims that his move to Emirates Stadium was purely money motivated
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has labelled Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke a “clown’ in response to his dig at the Arsenal star earlier this week.
Aubameyang spent five years at Westfalenstadion before securing a £60 million ($74m) switch to Emirates Stadium in 2018.
The 30-year-old has since emerged as one of the most prolific strikers in the Premier League, netting 39 goals in 56 appearances.
In a recent interview with Suddeutsche Zeitung, Dortmund chief Watzke aimed a dig at Aubameyang, insisting his decision to join Arsenal was purely based on financial gain.
He cited BVB’s consistent presence in the Champions League as proof of that fact, a competition that the Gunners have not participated in since 2017.
Aubameyang has hit back at Watzke on social media on Thursday, referencing former team-mate Ousmane Dembele’s transfer to Barcelona while threatening to reveal the real reason behind his move to north London.
The Gabon international said: “Better for you, I never talk about why I really left Dortmund Mr Watzke you such a clown.
“I remember that time you said we never gonna sell Ousmane then you saw more than €100m,you were the first to take that money.
“Don’t talk about money, please!!! Leave me alone, please!!!.”
