Aubameyang, who was scored 10 goals in 13 games for Dortmund this season, was pictured watched his team-mates in the stands at Signal Iduna Park.

And Bild claim that Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel took the decision to temporarily suspend the striker for using his phone during a pre-match meeting ahead of the game.

So far, Dortmund have only confirmed that the 27-year-old was suspended for ‘internal reasons’.

‘The internal reasons are exactly that, internal,’ Dortmund’s CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke told ZDF.

‘I will not say anything.

‘But the good thing is he will be fresh against Hamburg. He will be back in the squad against Hamburg.’
