Aubameyang to miss international friendly, doubt for City

Arsenal’s Captain and talisman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has withdrawn from Gabon’s upcoming international friendly against Benin set to take place in Lisbon on Sunday 11th Oct. Patrice Neveu, Gabon national team coach, has confirmed the news.

Aubameyang had sprained his ankle in Arsenal’s last match against Sheffield United. The club’s medical team confirmed in an official report to Neveu about the sustained injury. According to it, the Arsenal ace is in a race against time to be fit for their trip to Manchester City on 17th Oct.

Aubameyang has had a great start to the season as he has already scored 2 goals and provided 1 assist in 4 games. Arsenal sit in 4th in the Premier League with 9 points from 4 games.

Aubameyang’s injury comes as troubling news for Arsenal, who are already without Kieran Tierney due to his forced isolation after his international teammate Stuart Armstrong tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday. 

As Arteta gets ready to take his new team to his erstwhile employers at the Etihad, the already formidable test now looks even harder.
