“We had a disciplinary issue, we have drawn the line, and we move on.
“We have a process that we have to respect for every game, and that’s it.
“It was a decision made after evaluating everything and who Auba is and what he’s done.
“We have other players who can play.”
Reacting, Aubameyang, in a post via his Instagram account, was full of praises for his teammates after the match.
In a post depicting his teammates celebrating, the Gabonese striker said: “North London is Red and that’s it!!!”
