The mishap of the Gabonese national team in The Gambia on the eve of their match against the host country did not go unnoticed. CAF was officially seized of the incident. But not only.
Arsenal entered the line. Angry, the English club not only threatened but decided not to release his player Aubameyang to join the selection of his country.
As a reminder, the Gabonese internationals had been detained all night from Sunday to Monday at Banjul airport. They must have slept on the floor. The photos and videos went around the world.
According to the coach of the Gabonese selection, Arsenal managers got in touch with their player from the start of the information flow. They also came into contact with the Gabonese federation demanding explanations. The French technician, Patrice Neveu, said he understood very well the reaction of the English club. He adds: “The result of what happened before the match will cause big problems for the Gabonese selection … it’s over, they will not release him any more. And it will be the same for other players from other clubs. … and that is understandable “.
