Last year, the club suspended Aubameyang for a Champions League match against Sporting Lisbon after he flew to a party in Milan without permission. "I could understand why I was suspended for Milan because I did not respect the rules, but this time I am truly baffled. I did not want to arrive late," he told German newspaper Bild in an interview. Bild said the player was suspended because he was 20 minutes late for training. German media have also speculated that he was suspended for again leaving Germany for a night out, this time in Barcelona.
