The Arsenal forward said his father is not interested to become Gabon coach and revealed why he is not always keen to honour national team call-ups

Gabon and Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has lashed out at Fegafoot for appointing his father Pierre-Francois as national team co-coach, allegedly before they reached an agreement with him.

Former Gabon captain Pierre-Francois was named as joint Panthers coach together with another former skipper Daniel Cousin. They were to replace Spanish coach Jose Antonio Camacho.

On Friday Aubameyang took to social media, expressing his anger about the appointments.

“You wondered why I have problems with you? Why I did not want to come and play for the national team? This is the proof again,” Aubameyang wrote on his official Instagram.

“You announce to the whole world about my father being appointed coach of the national team whereas you did not even have an agreement with him.

“The president of the federation called my dad and did not even care about his state of health, even though he is sick right now.

“To rush and give a press conference while my father told him he would give his answer the next day: negative (by the way).

“Without even giving him the choice, for example, to negotiate over his staff ... In short the day when the federation stops showing amateurism, the national team may then be able to move forward and find consistent results.”

Another Gabon captain Françols Amegasse was appointed general manager in the new set-up.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

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.
