Aubameyang shows true Dortmund colours

He may have left Dortmund’s tour of China early due to family reasons[2], but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has underlined his long-term commitment to Borussia with some strong statements to German publication Sportbild. Here’s what the 27-year-old said:

“The signings we’ve made are spectacular. I want to win trophies with [Mario] Götze[3] and [Andre] Schürrle[4] this season. We should aim to win at least one trophy.”

We’re as strong as we have been in the past, but I think we have even more potential now – simply because the team is so young and talented. We have the potential to challenge Bayern and we want to make it hard for them again this season.”

[On his future] I’m not finished with Dortmund. I want to be here a good few more years yet – my contract runs until 2020. There’s a lot I want to achieve here and I’m not interested in a transfer right now.”

That’s as unequivocal as you could probably get mid-transfer window. Dortmund fans, it looks like Christmas has come early!
