 The African football governing body has sanctioned the Arsenal star following his action before their Afcon qualification clash versus Gambia

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been fined $10,000 by the Confederation of African Football (Caf) for publishing “offensive and degrading material” that “dents the image of the African football ruling body”.

The punishment was meted out to the Arsenal star for slamming Caf after being made to feel like a “hostage”, having been forced to sleep in an airport alongside his teammates ahead of the Group D Africa Cup of Nations qualifier versus Gambia.

“Mr. Pierre Emerick Emiliano Francois Aubameyang has publicly published offensive and degrading material that undermines the honour and image of the Confederation of African Football,” a statement from Caf read.
