Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has hit out at Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger’s comments on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Arsenal are reported to be close to landing the Gabonese striker this January transfer window.
And speaking in his press conference on Wednesday ahead of Arsenal’s home league clash against Crystal Palace, Wenger hinted that Aubameyang has the character to blend in at Arsenal.
“Yes, a character can be very positive or very negative,” Wenger said. “Overall you look at achievement over career and if he has done well the character has been used in a positive way.”
According to standard.co.uk, Zorc has taken exception to the Frenchman’s comments.
“We think it is a lack of respect when you get involved with players who are playing for another team,” Zorc said on Thursday.
“There is no contact with Arsenal. We can only assume that Arsène Wenger has enough to think about when it comes to the performances of his own players.”
