Why I don’t want to be in the squad any longer?” Aubameyang said in an Instagram post late Friday.“The president of the federation called my dad but didn’t even bother to ask about his state of health. He’s sick at the moment.”Fegafoot admitted this was “a situation which could have been avoided,” blaming the sports minister for making a premature announcement. It added, however, that Aubame Eyang, who played 80 times for Gabon, “had on several occasions expressed his desire to train the national team”.Cousin, a 41-year-old former striker, played 56 times for Gabon and had been general manager of the Panthers since 2014.
