Stranded Aubameyang, Gabon Teammates Sleep On Airport Floor

The former Borussia Dortmund man shared videos and photos of the team stranded at the Banjul International Airport on his Instagram stories.

Gabon’s Panthers were billed to take on The Gambia (a match they lost 2-1) in a Group D qualifier for the competition scheduled for 2022 in Cameroon.

The Central African side were informed they could not leave the airport due to an administrative issue, forcing the delegation to sleep on the floor.

They were, however, allowed to leave the Banjul International Airport in the morning, hours before the tie.

The Gabonese football federation also shared photos and videos of the team sleeping on the airport floor on its Facebook page but made no comment about the issue.

A furious Aubameyang while replying to a tweet, urged the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to take responsibility.

“This will not demotivate us, but people need to know and CAF need to take responsibility,” the 2019/2020 joint-highest goalscorer added. “(It is) 2020 and we want Africa to grow, but this is not how we will get there.”
