Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has sent a message to Arsenal fans following his hat-trick against Leeds United on Sunday. Aubameyang scored a hat-trick in the Gunners’ 4-1 win over Leeds as Hector Bellerin also got his name on the scoresheet. Meanwhile, Pascal Strujik and Helder Costa scored for the Whites.
The 31-year-old missed several games due to personal issues. During this season he has made 23 appearances in which he has scored 11 goals and provided 1 assist.
“I try to give the best always for first my family and the team as well,” Aubameyang told Sky Sports.
“It’s been a tough time for me but now it’s time to get the smile back and win games and score goals, that’s it.
“Everyone was giving a lot of love to me, my mum and my family.
“I’m really, really happy and really proud to be part of this family. I have to say thank you to everyone at the club and the fans as well because I received a lot of messages.
“Really happy for today’s win and goals, this is for them.”
“Happy, really happy – my kids are going to be happy because they’ll get [the match ball],” he added.
“I’m really happy with performance from the team today. We knew it’d be a hard game – they never gave up until the end
“[Leeds] fought a lot. I thought we had a good game management at the end and we won the game.
“Maybe not nervy. I think we managed the game well and we won the game.
“I think it was important to show this is our home, this is where we have to win games, and we did it.”
