The club went on to add that the injury was not "serious".

The forward, however, did not feature in his country's squad for the FIFA World Cup 2018 qualifying fixture in Maputo, Mozambique, on Wednesday. In his absence, Gabon lost 1-0.

Aubameyang did, however, confirm that he will be available to feature in the return leg on Saturday.

"[I'll be] back on the field on Saturday," he tweeted on Wednesday evening. "It's not so bad."
