Amid disciplinary issues and transfer speculation, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was dropped by Borussia Dortmund for Friday night's trip to Hertha Berlin.
But, having been instructed to stay at home and train with the reserves, the striker spent his evening not watching his teammates on TV, but playing five-a-side with friends.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang went and played 5-a-side in Dortmund tonight with his mates...while his team-mates were playing away at Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga. Hmm. With an Ousmane Dembélé shirt on. Hmm. [📸BILD] pic.twitter.com/s8U12iAIHd— Archie Rhind-Tutt (@archiert1) January 19, 2018
