Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has revealed that when his time is up at Borussia Dortmund, a move to Liverpool won’t be on the cards.
Due to his links with Borussia Dortmund, Jürgen Klopp has always led some to believe that Liverpool will one day tap into the seemingly endless pool of talent at the Bundesliga club. Despite stars like Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Mats Hummels leaving in the summer, Dortmund remain a side capable of competing with the best.
The presence of world class attackers like Marco Reus and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang coupled with the emergence of young talents like Ousmane Dembele and Christian Pulisic has allowed Dortmund to progress to the knockout stages of the Champions League by topping a group that featured Real Madrid. Their league form, however, is a major concern as they currently lie 15 points adrift of league leaders Bayern Munich.
Their hopes for the future may have taken a further knock as their star striker confirmed that he is unsure if he’ll remain at the club past the summer. That being said, he seems pretty certain that he won’t be joining Klopp at Liverpool.
Will Aubameyang stay until the end of the season? He was adamant that he would as he told new German daily Fussball Bild, via the Liverpool Echo, he will “100 per cent” stay at Dortmund until the summer transfer window.
But after this season, the prolific striker is not guaranteeing anything. Although, when questioned if he’d join Liverpool and former boss Klopp, he replied, “I don’t think that’ll happen.”
Aubameyang added, “Nobody can foresee the future. I love it at Dortmund, but I can’t say that I’ll stay for two more years, or five or 10.
“It’s possible that a club could reach an agreement with Dortmund in June and I’ll go.
“I want to be honest: When you are ambitious and also want to see something else,,, it’s difficult to talk about. Some players have ambitions, and therefore they leave and want to experience something new, you know.”
In the past, Aubameyang has said that his dream would me to join Real Madrid and he commented on this when asked about it: “Yes, yes. That’s true but, you know, there is not only Real Madrid in this world.”
It’s disappointing to know that Liverpool don’t have a chance to sign a forward who has scored 100 goals in 165 games for Dortmund. His ability to function in Klopp’s high-pressing system would be almost as much of an asset as his goalscoring ability.
Only one way to sum this up:
