It was his second internal ban of the season and third in around a year. That's why certainly he loves the club as well. They must be more competitive on the market - times have changed since I left.

"I have had no problem with Alexis Sanchez". He was in training (on Wednesday), fully committed and prepared 100 per cent. The French coach is desperate to add more firepower to the squad and believes Aubameyang is the ideal candidate to replace the Chilean.

"After that, he's 29 years old and the next contract will of course be very important for him".
