Arsenal captain and striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang withdrew from the matchday squad that had traveled to Southampton for an FA Cup fourth round tie and then also wasn’t involved in Tuesday’s 3-1 win over Southampton. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has however come out and revealed that the personal family problems that he was handling were about his mother.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta gave Aubameyang his privacy when speaking on this matter when the press asked him about the situation which had seen the Gabonese international withdraw from the matchday squad that faced Southampton and the gooners will be happy to see that the player has come out to explain his absence as they were worried about him.
In a statement released on all Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s official accounts, the Arsenal striker said that his mother had health problems but that she was now feeling better thanks to the care that she received from the doctors and nurses. Aubameyang also confirms that he will soon be home and the fans will be hopeful that he will still start training in time for their match against Manchester United.
