BREAKING: Arsenal’s Aubameyang left out AFCON squad for suspected heart problem

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been left out of the Gabon squad to face Ghana on Friday after scan results showed he suffered from heart problems.

The extensive examinations were carried out by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and Aubameyang’s teammate AC Milan star Mario Lemina was also remove from the group for the same reason.

Aubameyang tested positive for Covid-19 last week but had recently returned to training and was expected to be involved in Friday night’s game.

A statement from the Gabon Football Federation said: “According to the CAF medical commission, the players Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Axel Meyé and Mario Lemina barely out of the Covid cannot take part in this match. The examinations would show heart problems. CAF did not want to take any risks.”
