Barcelona striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has expressed happiness after scoring his first hattrick for the Catalan club in their LaLiga 4-1 win against Valencia on Sunday.

Aubameyang made a promise to teammate, Pedri after Barcelona defeated Valencia at the Mestalla Stadium.

Barcelona defeated Valencia in a LaLiga tie at the weekend, thanks to three goals from Aubameyang and a goal from Frenkie de Jong.

Pedri looked to have scored the fourth goal from a distance for Barcelona against Valencia, but it was later awarded to Aubameyang.

Reacting, Aubameyang, in a post via his Instagram account after the game, hailed his teammates for their performances against Valencia.

The 32-year-old wrote: “First LaLiga start – first hattrick. Incredible feeling and great team performance!! Special thanks to @pedrigonzalez for the assist. I promise I got your back next time.”

Aubameyang will now hope to continue his brilliant form for Barcelona when they face Napoli in the Europa League on Thursday.

The Gabon captain joined Barcelona from Arsenal on the last day of the January transfer window after the Gunners terminated his contract.
