Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang concedes he must get back to scoring goals
From ESPN - November 15, 2017

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang accepts he needs to face up to criticism of his recent Borussia Dortmund performances, but added in Bild that things should not be blown out of proportion.

Aubameyang, 28, has become one of the symbols for Dortmund's current crisis, which has seen them win only one of their last seven matches -- a 5-0 DFB Pokal win at third-tier club Magdeburg.

The Gabon international has not found the back of the net since scoring a brace in BVB's 3-2 defeat to RB Leipzig in October -- a run of five consecutive matches without a goal.

"It is expected of me that I score goals," Aubameyang, who stayed behind with Dortmund during the international break, told Bild.
