Gabon have been dealt a massive blow with the news that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has tested positive for COVID-19 just days before the Africa Cup of Nations
The Panthers captain was released early by Arsenal in order to join the rest of Patrice Neveu’s squad for a training camp in Dubai.
However, the Gabonese Football Federation (FEGAFOOT) took to Twitter on Thursday to announce that Aubameyang and Nice midfielder Mario Lemina had returned positive tests upon landing in Cameroon.
It is another setback for Aubameyang after he was stripped of the captaincy and dropped by Gunners head coach Mikel Arteta last month for a disciplinary breach.
