Gabonese international duo Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mario Lemina have tested positive for COVID-19, just days after partying together in Dubai.
Aubameyang’s Arsenal career appears to be all but over as a consequence of falling short of Mikel Arteta’s disciplinary expectations. He only has himself to blame in regards to that.
Unfortunately, Aubameyang, who is now 32-years-old and running out of excuses, has clearly not learnt any lessons from his past mistakes.
The striker was spotted partying with international teammate Mario Lemina in Dubai just a few days ago. He has now tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.

Both captain Aubameyang and midfielder Lemina, the two most renowned players within the Gabon squad, may well have cost their country any chance of success at the African Cup of Nations.
The pair’s decision to prepare for the AFCON tournament by living it up in Dubai has proven to be a major error of judgement.
Arsenal may well be keen to see the back of £350k-a-week Aubameyang this month, but you have to wonder who would be foolish enough to make him their problem…
