Aubameyang makes history at Barça! Busquets: “It’s a gift” – FOOTBALL

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (32) has always been cheerful, but in recent weeks at Arsenal the striker hardly ever laughed. After mixed performances and disputes with manager Mikel Arteta, the Gabonese was first dropped from the team and then handed over for free.

After the winter transfer to FC Barcelona, ​​the former Dortmund star is once again laughing out loud. Not only has he established himself as a regular under manager Xavi, but he has also quickly found a place in the hearts of fans, and after his first appearance as a starter in the league, he now has a place in the history books too! !

Aubameyang scored three times in a 4-1 draw at Valencia. He is the first player this millennium to score a hat-trick in Ligue 1 (for St Etienne), Bundesliga (BVB), Premier League (Arsenal) and now LaLiga. Not even Zlatan Ibrahimovic, whose time at Barcelona was not very successful, left him. The Swede can target hat-tricks from Juventus, PSG, Milan, Manchester United and the LA Galaxy.

No wonder “Auba” could hardly stop smiling after the match. He praised the team: “We played very well recently, we just lacked the results. Today we were also very good, now we have won. That was very important for the team.”

Aubameyang gave the guests the lead after a dreamy deep pass from Jordi Alba with a powerful forehand (23′) and after a pass from friend Ousmane Dembélé he also made it 3-0 (38′). The goal for 4:1 (63rd) was only awarded after the final whistle. He had deflected Pedri’s shot with his back.

Through Instagram, the Barça attacker joked: “I promise you that next time I will hit you in the back.”

After the game, coach Xavi made a special praise of the new winter signing: “He has scored goals throughout his career. He is good in the penalty area. He is experienced, intelligent, humble and positive. I am very happy with it. Goals from him will give him confidence.”

Captain Sergio Busquets also praised Aubameyang on ‘Movistar+’: “He works very well. He was in dire need of operational time when he came here, and he is getting it now. I hope he can continue helping us because he is a great player. Having him in the team, especially on a free transfer, it’s a gift.”
