Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been cleared to play against Everton after submitting a medical certificate to the German court.

Aubameyang was due to give testimony regarding the terrorist attack on the Borussia Dortmund team bus last April.

The court date was five days ago, and happened to fall in the middle of the striker’s transfer to Arsenal.

Playing against Everton would have put him at risk of a £900 fine.

Fortunately, he’s submitted a medical certificate in time which will clear him to play, according to today’s edition of the Daily Mail which builds on a story we covered yesterday that stated Auba still has to appear to give evidence

Aubameyang had missed the court date due to illness although many speculated this was just a ruse because of his impending transfer to Arsenal.

There were doubts about him appearing against Everton due to the same illness, with Arsene Wenger saying he would have to assess how he felt.

“Aubameyang was sick as well, so we have to assess him today [Friday],” he said, as reported by Arsenal.com.

After the 3-1 defeat to Swansea, seeing him in action this weekend could be a real boost to the fans.

It’d also give him a chance to get off the mark straight away.

Should he be unable to play against Everton, his debut will come against Tottenham at Wembley.
