Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang became the first player in this century to score a hat-trick in four major leagues across Europe.
The Gabonese striker scored his first hat-trick yesterday in La Liga when Barcelona defeated Valencia 4-1 at their backyard.
The former Arsenal striker, who last found the net in October in the Gunners’ 3-1 win over Aston Villa, now has 10 goals overall this season.
Frenkie de Jong scored the second goal for Barcelona, who looked much improved after struggling at the start of the campaign in the wake of the departure of talisman Lionel Messi.
While playing for Arsenal, he also managed a hat-trick after leaving Borussia Dortmund where he also managed several hat-tricks in the Bundesliga. He did the same while playing in the league One when playing for Saint-Etiene in France.
