Per Reuters, the Gabon squad and staff were told an “administrative problem” had lead to lengthy delays before Government intervention allowed them to leave the airport.
Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Gabon head coach Patrice Neveu says Arsenal "won't let Aubameyang come again" and expects the same from other players’ clubs.
He said: "Arsenal called Pierre-Emerick. After seeing him in those conditions, it's over… They won’t let him come again, and it will be the same for players from other clubs.
"It's understandable. They are high level players and when they come on international duty, they need to have a minimum of comfort."
He added: “All the players tried to sleep on the airport floor. Imagine if Aubameyang, a player who costs more than €1m/month, gets injured.
"[Arsenal] can be annoyed after what’s happened, to make a player sleep the floor.”
