Borussia Dortmund have asked Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang not to make his plans over his future known, after he hinted he’ll be leaving at the end of the season.
The Gabon international has hinted he might leave Signal Iduna Park to better his career , with Real Madrid looking to sign him.
Aubameyang’s comments have not been appreciated by the BVB bosses and sporting director Michael Zorc has advised him to stop giving interviews.
“We have had a brief meeting with Aubameyang and have advised him to give fewer interviews about his plans for the summer and focus more on the race for Champions League qualification,” Zorc told Westdeutschen Allgemeinen.
“We have a great relationship with him, but we had to do something to show our focus is on the sporting aspect of the game.”
Aubameyang has scored 16 goals in as many Bundesliga appearances for a Dortmund side that sits fourth in the table, one point adrift of third-place Eintracht Frankfurt.
Dortmund host RB Leipzig, who are in second, on Saturday.
