Borussia Dortmund have dropped striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for disciplinary reasons for a third time.

Aubameyang, 28, has scored 13 goals in 15 Bundesliga appearances this season, but was absent when the teams were announced for their home game against Wolfsburg on Sunday as the German league restarted after the winter break.

Dortmund tweeted the news but did not explain what had happened, but Bild reported that he had missed a team briefing after Saturday's training session.

Aubameyang was also temporarily suspended in November, with sporting director Michael Zorc revealing that punctuality problems had led to the action. Bild reported that the striker had been repeatedly late for training, including turning up 20 minutes late for final preparations ahead of the trip to Stuttgart.
