BVB director Zorc: What I told Aubameyang after Lisbon loss…

Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has revealed what he said to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang last month.

The German club were beaten 1-0 by Benfica in the Champions League Round of 16 first leg in Lisbon with Auba missing a number of golden opportunities, including a second-half penalty.

Visibly disappointed with his performance, Auba took on board the words of Zorc and put his Lisbon failure behind him to be the difference in the return bout with a hat-trick in last night's 4-0 home win.

"I had told Auba after the game in Lisbon that he would be the one deciding the return leg," said Zorc.

"He did just that tonight."

Dortmund have now progressed to the quarter-finals along with fellow Bundesliga heavyweights Bayern Munich and Spanish pair Real Madrid and Barcelona, who produced the greatest comeback in Champions League history by beating PSG 6-1 at the Nou Camp to go through 6-5 on aggregate.
