Mesut Ozil made a very long statement in pre-season about his disillusionment of his treatment by the German Football Federation and effectively resigned from playing for the national team ever again, now it seems that the Arsenal striker has also released a vehement message to the Gabon FA (FEGAFOOT) admitting that he had no wish to play for them, after they (prematurely) announced that Aubameyang’s father, Pierre Aubame, as the new coach of the national side.
