Pierre Francois Aubameyang, Pierre-Emerick’s dad, is a former Gabon international and captained them at the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations

Gabon’s Football Federation (Fegafoot) has been forced to admit it named Pierre Francois Aubameyang as joint coach of the national team without a deal being finalised.

On Thursday, Fegafoot announced that Aubameyang and another former international, Daniel Cousin, would be coaching the Panthers.

But his son, Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick, took to social media to condemn the announcement saying his father was unwell and had not agreed to take the job.

However, the football authority said it made the appointment public in good faith
