Fears that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang suffered an injury while on international duty were resolved by Goal.com Charles Watts who reported that the player returned to training at London Colney today.
The Arsenal captain scored a winning penalty for Gabon as they beat Libya 1-0 at home last Friday, however, with other results confirming a World Cup spot out of reach. control of his country, he did not feature in last night’s loss to Egypt in Cairo.
Instead, the striker has returned to London to focus on preparing for Saturday’s big game against Liverpool.
Aubameyang will return to training at London Colney today as usual. His early return from the pre-planned international mission to Gabon. No injuries or anything like that. He’s fine for Saturday.
