Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang wants to go all the way in the 2015/16 UEFA Europa League after helping Borussia Dortmund to a commanding 3-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur FC in Thursday's Round of 16 first leg at SIGNAL IDUNA PARK.
Speaking after the game, the irrepressible Gabon international shared his thoughts on another vintage BVB display and quashed rumours linking him with a move away from the club.
Goals: 1-0 Aubameyang (30'), 2-0 Reus (60'), 3-0 Reus (70')
Question: How happy are you tonight?
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang: Very, very happy (laughs). 100 per cent happy because it was a great game from us and of course it was important to win this game and not concede.
Question: You have scored 33 goals this season. Is that like a dream for you?
Aubameyang: For sure it's very good. I'm happy, but I want to continue to score because the season has not finished.
Question: There are a lot of rumours that you might leave the club. There was one yesterday about you going to Real Madrid. Is it bulls**t? What do you think about it?
Aubameyang: It's bulls**t. Papers are like this. I’m focussed on my season here. I'm from Borussia Dortmund and for the moment I’m here.
Question: You just played against Tottenham, a top team from the Premier League. What does this win say about Dortmund?
Aubameyang: We have a great team. We worked very hard tonight and it was a very good game from us. For sure we'll have to be focused ahead of the next game because we'll be playing over there in England. I'm very happy because we worked very well as a team tonight.
Question: Is the dream of winning the Europa League now a little bit closer?
Aubameyang: I hope so. I want to go to the final. It's one of our objectives and I hope to go to the final for sure.
