Arsenal’s Aubameyang Misses Second Straight Game Over “Family Issue”

As Arsenal romped to a 3-1 win at the St. Mary’s Stadium on a rainy Tuesday evening, their Gabonese skipper, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang was missing in action again.

It was Arsenal’s second visit to Southampton in just over three days and it was Aubameyang’s second absence.

Unconfirmed reports coming out of Arsenal say it’s a personal problem as insinuations keep spreading about the roots and source of his upheavals.

While some have said Aubameyang is facing a divorce from his French wife after being reportedly caught cheating, others have said it’s about his family.

Aubameyang has finally come out to clear the air on Wednesday, as he revealed that his mum is battling a serious health condition.

The Arsenal captain has had a turbulent season and was just settling into his better days when family problems struck. He was excused by the club to attend to the pressing issues.

The Gunners hierarchy and manager, Mikel Arteta have promised to stay with him through the troubles as he hopes to get back to the team soon.

It is likely that Aubameyang will miss Arsenal’s clash against high flying Manchester United this weekend.

The Gunners, smarting from a strong run in the league, having picked 16 from their last 18 points after a dreadful start to the season, will hope to continue their boogey dance against the Red Devils.

Against Southampton on Tuesday, Ivorian winger, Nicolas Pepe was on the score sheet as he hopes to bounce back from a poor season so far.
