Some Arsenal players have reacted to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s first hat-trick for Barcelona on Sunday..

The Gabonese scored his first hat-trick for Barcelona on Sunday and received messages of support from his former teammates in north London.

Aubameyang, who made his full debut in the LaLiga on Sunday, scored twice in the first half against Valencia, before completing a hat-trick in the second half.

His former striking partner at Arsenal, Alexandre Lacazette was quick to congratulate the 32-year-old by responding with fire emojis to Aubameyang’s hat-trick celebration post on Instagram.

Also another former Arsenal teammate, Rob Holding replied: “Aubama what!!!”

Speaking after the game, Barcelona manager, Xavi Hernandez praised Aubameyang for the start he has made at Barcelona.

“He has scored goals in his entire career,” said Xavi.

“It was to be expected that he would score here soon, too.

“He goes very well to space. He is mature. He is very intelligent. I am delighted with him.

“These two [subsequently changed to three] goals will go very well for him.”

Barcelona star, Sergio Busquets, said having the Gabon captain in Barcelona’s squad is a ‘luxury’.

“He is working very well,” the midfielder told reporters after the game.

“He arrived with a lack of minutes but he is now getting them.

“He added his second start and I hope he helps us like that because he is a great player, and it is a luxury to have him in the squad.”

Aubameyang left Arsenal on the last day of the January transfer window, with the Gunners having to terminate his contract to force a move.
