Aubameyang grateful to support after bagging a hat trick

by Koolkola

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang bagged his first EPL hat trick against Leeds United. He also went home with the man-of-the-match award.

He spoke to Sky Sports after the match and expressed happiness at going home with the match ball. He also thanked everyone for showing him support during the trying times.

On scoring a first Premier League hat-trick…

Yeah, I’m happy, really happy. And my kids are going to be happy because they are going to get it [the matchball]. I’m really happy about the performance from the team today. We knew that it was going to be a hard game. They never gave up. In the end, they fought a lot. I thought we had good game management at the end and we won the game.

On the team getting nervous at 4-2…

Maybe…not nervy. As I said, we managed well the end of the game.

On the need to seal a big win at the Emirates…

Sure, I think it was important to show that this is our home, this is where we have to win games. And we did it.

On surprising Leeds keeper Meslier with his first goal…

Yeah, sometimes you have to change the way you shoot. I think the goalkeeper was expecting me to shoot on his left but I changed a little bit. It was a good goal.

On scoring from the spot…

We practise penalties in training a lot. I know how to manage the pressure in that case. We needed that second goal. That’s it.

On the hat-trick meaning more after a tough period for him…

Sure, it means a lot to me. I’m a guy who always works hard and tries to give the best always for, first my family, and my team as well. It’s been a tough time for me but now it’s time to get the smile back and win games and score goals.

On being supported by the club recently…

Definitely, everybody around the club was giving me a lot of love, to me, my mum and my family. I’m really, really happy and proud to be part of this family. I have to say thank you to everyone at the club and to the fans as well because I received a lot of messages. I’m really happy for today’s win and the goals. This is for them.
