Last Sunday, the Gabon National Team had to sleep at the airport because of a bureaucratic problem with the coronavirus tests, just when they were traveling to Banjul to face Gambia in a game that they ended up losing 2-1.
After returning to London, at Arsenal they saw that the physical state of their star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang it was far from good. Now the anger of the ‘Gunners’ is so great that they could even prevent the forward from returning with his team.
This was pointed out by Patrice Neveu, coach of Gabon, in a few words to the local press collected by ‘AS’: “Arsenal called Pierre-Emerick. After seeing him in these conditions, it was over … They will not let him return and not only him, will happen with other players from other clubs. “
Neveu resigned himself: “It’s understandable. They are players of the highest level and when they go with their national teams they should have a minimum of comfort. All the players tried to sleep on the airport floor. Imagine if Aubameyang, what charges more than a million euros a month, he will be injured. “
“The Arsenal may be angry after what happened. To see his player sleeping on the ground, “added the Gabonese coach. However, FIFA regulations oblige clubs to release players to go with their national teams.
