Country to Pay $100,000 For Allowing Arsenal Player to Sleep on the Floor

By Olamide Oyetunj - The Confederation of African Football has punished Gambia for allowing Arsenal captain and his Gabonese national team to sleep on the floor.

Gambia has been fined $100,000 for the unsporting reception accorded to the visiting Gabonese national team in November.

In its ruling published on Tuesday, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) chided the hosts for non-compliance "with the loyalty, Integrity and sportsmanship values and rules of Fair Play".

The Gabon delegation were told they were not allowed to leave the airport because of an administrative problem and were forced to sleep on the floor before being allowed to leave in the morning after government intervention.

The incident garnered global attention after Arsenal captain and Gabon international Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang tweeted about it.
