Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang vs Gabon

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has taken to social media to vent.

Aubameyang, 29, is undoubtedly the most famous footballer Gabon has ever produced.

In the past few days, however, the Gabonese FA have fallen out with the Arsenal centre-forward.

That’s after the Gabon FA announced that Pierre Francois Aubameyang has been appointed as a new coach.

A copy of the Gabon press released posted on Facebook regarding Aubameyang senior’s appointment is below.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang reacts badly

You may have assumed that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would be happy his dad has started a new job.

But that’s definitely not the case, as Aubameyang has slammed the Gabonese FA on his Instagram account.

Aubameyang has written a lengthy post to explain that his dad has never agreed to the position.

This is a particularly sensitive issue for Aubameyang as his dad is unwell.

In his social media post, Aubameyang accused his national FA of “amateurism”. Moreover, the Arsenal striker has suggested his may quit international football:

The day the federation stops being amateurish maybe the national team will be able to progress and once again earn some good results.

You ask yourselves why I have problems with you? Why I don’t want to come and play for the national team? Well you have just shown why once more.

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.
