Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to react to latest fitness update from new signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in which the striker wrote on his official Twitter page that he is fit but won’t be taking part in the Arsenal team that take on Osterunds at the Emirates on Thursday night.
According to BBC, Aubameyang will not be the only player missing the return against the Russian side as the tabloid claims midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil will miss the Europa League last-32 second-leg against Ostersunds FK on Thursday.
Manager Arsene Wenger took a near full-strength squad to Sweden for the first leg, which his side won 3-0, but will use some of his younger players at the Emirates.
Wenger said Germany international Ozil, 29, has been ill while Ramsey is recovering from a groin injury.
“There’s still lots at stake,” he said.
“Ozil was in bed Monday and Tuesday. I would certainly have played him, but because he was sick he will have to work hard tomorrow and won’t be involved.”
