Tuchel: Pressure Makes Aubameyang Better

Thomas Tuchel expects Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to perform well under the pressure of playing Real Madrid.

The Gabon international has often stated his desire to play for the Los Blancos, due to a promise he made to his grandfather.

However, Tuchel is not itching to sell the striker, who he says brings the best out of him and his teammates.

“Aubameyang is a great player. He makes the side better, he makes me better and we can’t achieve our objectives without him,” the Dortmund boss told a media conference.

“He’s a quality player. All players would love to play in the best sides in the world, and one of those clubs in Real Madrid. It’s always a pressure to play at the Santiago Bernabeu and he likes pressure and it often brings the best out in him.”

Dortmund can guarantee top spot in Group F if they avoid defeat – a scenario that would potentially grant them an easier draw for the last-16 stage.
