Arsenal’s and Gabon’s national team forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang spoke about the reason why he missed the last few matches of the “Gunners.”

“Hey guys, thanks for all the messages and calls. Unfortunately I contracted malaria when I was on national team duty in Gabon a few weeks ago. I’ve spent a few days in hospital this week but I’m already feeling much better every day, thanks to the great doctors that detected and treated the virus so quickly. I wasn’t really feeling myself the last couple weeks but will be back stronger than ever soon! Will be watching my boys now, huge game for us!Let‘s go and get it”.
