Aubameyang At Loggerheads With Gabon

Arsenal superstar Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is embroiled in a row with the Gabon FA after he refused to travel with his national teammates for their recent Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

The 2015 CAF African Footballer of the Year featured in Gabon's 3-0 home victory over South Sudan, but left the camp early after becoming upset with the state of the plane used by his team to travel to the away fixture against the same nation.

Aubameyang reportedly refused to travel to South Sudan, and returned early to London instead, according to L'Equipe.

The striker apparently felt the plane was not up to scratch for what is required for professional athletes, and told Gabon FA officials he would not board as a result.

The rest of the squad, however, flew to Juba and returned with a 1-0 away win over South Sudan. Gabon are now second in their Africa Cup of Nations qualifying group with seven points, one point behind Group C leaders Mali.

This is not the first time Aubameyang has upset his country's FA, after playing in just two of their past nine international friendlies.

The former Borussia Dortmund star, who has begun the 2018/19 Premier League season with six goals in nine games, has represented Gabon 51 times, scoring 20 goals along the way.
