Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has revealed his intention to retire from the Gabonese national team. The report is coming as a result of Gabon’s failure to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations, following their 1-1 draw with Burundi last week, which saw them finish third in their group.
In an effort to rebuild the team, Gabonese sport minister Alan Bilie has dissolved the team disclosing that the team needed total overhaul. He said ““We are going to rebuild the national team on a new basis by setting aside everyone who is characterized by a lack of envy, patriotism, and who have put more emphasis on financial resources, the nation and the spirit,” Bilie said in quotes reported on Nairobi News .
The strikers intention cannot be far from the backlash received from fan over the country’s non qualification for the Nations cup .
