Arsenal player Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang announced on Thursday that he had contracted malaria during the international match window in which he played for Gabon.
The Arsenal player, who renewed a millionaire contract last summer, had been playing the last games with the English, but fell from the call to play last weekend against Sheffield United and also from the summons for the visit of this Thursday at Slavia Prague.
“Unfortunately I contracted Malaria while I was with the national team in Gabon a few weeks ago. I have spent several days in the hospital in recent weeks, but I am already feeling much better. Thanks to the doctors who detected it and treated me for the virus so quickly. I’ll be back stronger than ever. “Aubameyang said in an Instagram post in which he appears bedridden in a hospital bed.
The Gabonese has played 32 games this season and has scored 13 goals.
