Arsenal striker, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang has revealed his fury to the Gabon Football Association who announced that his father will now coach Gabon
The Gabon Football Association announced that Aubameyang senior along with Daniel Cousin will both coach the Gabon National team.
The Prolific striker who was on target twice on Thursday night, took to his Instagram to say that his father had not taken the role and blasted the football association over its methods
He accused them of not even notifying his father or speaking to him about the possible appointment and that they also didn’t consider his health in the equation.
Aubameyang also said that this was the reason he doesn’t always honor national call-ups
“You wondered why I have problems with you? Why I did not want to come and play for the national team? This is the proof again,” Aubameyang wrote on Instagram.
“You announce to the whole world about my father being appointed coach of the national team whereas you did not even have an agreement with him.
“The president of the federation called my dad and did not even care about his state of health, even though he is sick right now.
“To rush and give a press conference while my father told him he would give his answer the next day: negative (by the way).
“Without even giving him the choice, for example, to negotiate over his staff … In short the day when the federation stops showing amateurism, the national team may then be able to move forward and find consistent results.”

Fega foot ( @fegafoot ) : Vous vous demandiez pourquoi j’ai des problèmes avec vous ? Pourquoi je ne voulais plus venir en sélection? Ceci en est la demonstration encore une fois. Vous annoncez au monde entier, concernant mon père soit disant coach de l’équipe nationale alors que vous n’avez même pas eu son accord ! Le président de la fédération a appelé mon papa et ne s’est même pas soucié de son état de santé, lui qui est malade en ce moment… Pour se précipiter et donner une conférence de presse alors que mon père lui as indiqué qu’il donnerait sa réponse le lendemain : négative (soit dit en passant). Sans même lui laisser le choix ni même négocier par exemple pour son staff ou autres… Bref le jour où la fédération ne fera plus preuve d’amateurisme, l’équipe nationale pourra alors peut être avancer et retrouver des résultats cohérents.
Aubameyang is expected to be in action against Everton when Arsenal welcome them to the Emirates on Sunday hoping to make it 4 wins out of 4 and also 5 wins on the trot overall.
The former Dortmund man has taken a while to rev up this season but has now scored 3 goals and will be feeling more confident.
