Aubameyang trains with Gabon after negative test

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang returned to training with the Gabon squad ahead of Friday’s Africa Cup of Nations clash with Ghana after testing negative for Covid-19.

The 32-year-old — who is out of favor at Arsenal and was stripped of the captaincy last month — and Mario Lemina both tested positive last week and missed Gabon’s opening 1-0 win over Comoros on Monday.

However, coach Patrice Neveu is isolated after testing positive according to the Gabonese football federation.

Gabon has had a troubled build-up to the biennial continental showpiece tournament.

The Gabonese government had to resolve a dispute between the players and the federation over match bonuses while the Confederation of African Football (CAF) scolded them for breaking the rules in changing hotels in Yaounde.
