Aubameyang was missing from the Arsenal squad that was to play Slavia Prague. In the build up to the game, Mikel Arteta confirmed that he was unsure whether or not the Gabonese striker would be available for selection after missing Sunday evening’s 3-0 victory over Sheffield United through an illness.
On his Instagram page, Aubameyang revealed that he contracted Malaria and he is battling with the illness.
He apparently contracted the disease during the International break when he was in action for Gabon.
“Hey guys, thanks for all the messages and calls. Unfortunately, I contracted Malaria whilst being on national team duty in Gabon a few weeks ago”. Aubameyang wrote on his Instagram page.
“I’ve spent a few days in hospital this week but I’m already feeling much better every day, thanks to the great doctors that detected and treated the virus so quickly.
“I wasn’t really feeling myself the last couple of weeks but will be back stronger than ever soon.
“Will be watching my boys now, huge game for us! Let’s go and get it @Arsenal.”
During the post-match conference, Arteta revealed that Aubameyang is now doing fine at home after spending two days in hospital.
