Borussia Dortmund coach Peter Stoger says he is relieved to see the end of the Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang transfer saga following his move to Arsenal.
The Gunners completed the deadline-day signing of the Gabon international, who moved to north London in a club-record £56m after a prolonged move for the striker.
And Stoger is hoping the club's focus can return to the field of play, now that there are no more potential transfer rumours to concern the players.
"It's good that it's over because that issue occupied so much space in public," Stoger told Bild.
"Now there's not that issue anymore behind which you can hide.
"In my time here he [Aubameyang] never came too late.
"Only one single time he skipped our team meeting and only one single time he practiced badly because he wanted to put a sign [out], apparently. But apart from that he behaved reasonably."
