Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says that he was "stunned" by the reception he received from the Borussia Dortmund fans during a pre-season friendly with Magdeburg on Saturday.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has said that he is overwhelmed by the welcome he has received from the Borussia Dortmund fans since his €13m (£11.2m) arrival from Saint-Etienne.

The 24-year-old forward - one of Europe's most highly-rated prospects - signed a five-year deal with the Bundesliga outfit earlier this month and appeared for his new club in a pre-season friendly against Madgeburg on Saturday.

"I was stunned with the welcome I received during a friendly on Saturday," he told L'Equipe. "There were 50,000 fans there, it was crazy.

"It was important for me to choose the right sporting project. I have dreams and I want to make them reality.

"It seemed obvious to come here. The game they play here is perfect for me and I couldn't dream of anything better. I have always wanted to play for one of the greatest clubs in Europe. Here I am."

Aubameyang scored 19 goals in Ligue 1 last season.
