Shortly after showing Tottenham what they missed out on in the Europa League last night, Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang revealed that he very nearly joined the Premier League side back in 2012.
The Gabon international opened talks over a move to Harry Redknapp’s mob but subsequently walked away after negotiations became- in his words – “a bit weird”.
In fact, Aubameyang, who was playing for Saint-Etienne at the time, reckons things got so awkward that it’s now put him off signing for Spurs altogether.
In the end everything became a bit weird, I didn’t really like the way things were done.
If Spurs ever came back in me for me, I’d say no.
How weird, you ask?
