Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is allowed to return to Arsenal in light of the ongoing health issues the Gabonese footballer continues to face in the Africa Cup of Nations.


A little about Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

The Arsenal player has yet to feature in the two-year African football exhibition after testing positive for coronavirus on January 6, and while he was due to return against Ghana earlier this week, his return has been medically blocked. The Panter manager has now confirmed that the Gabon player will be allowed to return to Arsenal so that his current health issues – and the nature of the coronavirus residue in his system – are properly assessed.


What did Patrice Neveu say?

Patrice Neveu said the decision had been made since yesterday to send them home to his club, referring to Aubameyang and teammate Lemina. they cannot judge it here in Cameroon, they cannot assess the pathology of the coronavirus here. Patrice Neveu added that it was important that Mario Lemina returned to Nice and Aubameyang returned to Arsenal. This is a decision they made among themselves.

The Gabon Football Federation subsequently confirmed in a statement that the players were being released from international debt. A brief communiqué states that the Gabon Football Federation has taken the decision to return players Lemina and Aubameyang to their clubs to follow up on deeper exams.


What was the situation?

Pierre-Emerick tested positive for the coronavirus upon arrival at Yaoundé airport, flying to Cameroon from Abu Dhabi with compatriot Lemina. The diagnosis forced him to sit out the Panthers opener – a 1-0 victory over the Comoros – but after returning a negative test, he trained with the team on Thursday ahead of their second Group C game against Ghana.

His return plans were thwarted only hours before launch with the Black Stars, after medical tests showed evidence of coronavirus residues in his system. After the match, Gabon said they were hopeful that subsequent medical tests would allow both Aubameyang and Lemine to return to action, though camp sources on Sunday found that subsequent medical tests showed no change in circumstances.

The decision was made on Sunday, ahead of Tuesday’s final group meeting with Morocco, to allow both to return to their respective clubs. Patrice Neveu continued that it is very difficult. according to Patrice he is not new to this team, he has worked with Gabon for three years and luckily Caf gave them the opportunity to have a roster of 28 players.

However, having lost Pierre-Emerick and Mario, this is a lot for this team. They don’t have a squad from Nigeria or Morocco and they know they’re in a tough competition. The Gabonese, who have four points from their starting two matches, are aiming for the first knockout stage of the Nations Cup since 2012. The Panthers have also suffered several new infections, including power forward Bouanga, second-choice goalkeeper Nubi Fotso, full-back Sambissa, midfielder Ngouali and striker Eneme Ella.
