‘Absolutely gargantuan W’: These Arsenal fans are loving 30-year-old’s audacious Twitter post

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has clapped back at Borussia Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke on Twitter, after he claimed the star only left for money.

He wrote: “Better for you I never talk about why I really left Dortmund Mr Watzke. You are such a clown. I remember that time you said we never gonna sell Ousmane [Dembele], then you saw more than £100m, you were the first to take that money.
