Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and his countrymen from the Selection of Gabon they lived a real hell in the Banjul airport, Gambia. The internationals from the Arsenal star’s country had to stay for several hours at the airport not having permission to enter the border.

Aubameyang himself, a great star and image of the Gabon National Team, joked about the situation on social networks and shared an image with a notable tired face: “I can’t believe we’re still at the airport“.
The Arsenal player, yes, motivated his fans below: “This will not demotivate usBut people must know what happened and, above all, that CAF assumes its responsibility. In 2020, we want Africa to grow and that is not how we will achieve it! “
In addition to the forward’s words on social networks, images of his teammates sleeping on the airport floor were leaked. Seeing is believing in the XXI century.
