Borussia Dortmund bounced back from their defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt on Matchday 12 with an emphatic 4-1 win in the battle of the Borussias against Mönchengladbach, and an outstanding Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was once again the main protagonist.
The Gabon forward scored goals number 14 and 15 of a season he intends to conclude with at least some silverware – be it individual or with his team. "I want to win a title, it's on my mind and of course I want to win the top-scorer award, so that's my objective now," he said following victory at the SIGNAL IDUNA PARK. "For the moment I am only thinking about this and after we will see what happens."
Watch: Aubameyang discusses race for top-scorer's title:
After drawing the short straw with both Robert Lewandowski and FC Bayern München last season, the 27-year-old has made no secret of his desire to emerge on top next May. He laid the gauntlet down to the Pole at the start of the season, although despite opening up a six-goal advantage at the top of the scoring charts, his rhetoric was more restrained following Matchday 13.
"I don't want to say anything because he's a sniper and we know that," Aubameyang said. "We know that he can score five goals in nine minutes so that's why I'm not saying anything."
"When you have players like Marco and Dembele, you just have to shoot the ball and it's a goal." - Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Instead, the Gabonese goalscorer is letting his goals do the talking, and that is looking quite easy with Marco Reus and Ousmane Dembele providing support. "The connection was very good and we are happy that it is working – I hope we will continue like this," he said. "I feel very good and when you have players like Marco and Dembele, you just have to shoot the ball and it's a goal."
