The Arsenal striker missed two matches to be with his sick mother. He is expected to return against Manchester United on Saturday.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has missed Arsenal’s last two meetings for personal reasons, the club explained. But since Wednesday evening, we know the reason for the absence of the Gabonese striker.
His mom was sick and he wanted to spend time with her, as he explained on social media. “Thank you very much for all your messages and calls these last days”, begins the striker of the Gunners.
“My mom has a health problem,” he continues, “and I had to be there for her. She is already better now and I will be going home tonight (Wednesday). I’m more than grateful to the doctors and nurses who helped her get through this. ”
He then does not fail to thank his team and promises to maintain the momentum of the London club. “I am truly blessed to receive this level of love from you and I cannot wait to return.”
