“Happy, really happy – my kids are going to be happy because they will get it [the match ball],” Aubameyang said at a post-match press conference after the game.

“I’m happy with the performance. I knew it would be a hard game – they never gave up, but we managed the game well.

“The hat-trick means a lot to me. I’m a guy who always works hard. It’s been a tough time for me.

“Everyone was giving a lot of love to me, my mum and my family. I’ve to say thank you to everyone at the club and the fans.”
