Aubameyang, who had previously scored only one goal in Ligue 1 and faced criticism from supporters, notably in a league match against Lille, found form by scoring three crucial goals in a 4-3 victory over Ajax.
Addressing his performance, Aubameyang expressed contentment, saying, “When we score goals, we are happy. I didn’t come here to do I don’t know what. When things go badly, I’m the first to not feel good otherwise I wouldn’t be not there. I would have stopped playing football (smile).”
Aubameyang also addressed the criticism and the whistles he heard from the Vélodrome crowd.
He clarified his goal celebration, which involved a closed face and a sombre look, asking, “What makes you think that it is a distrust and not simply a personal discontent?”
He explained his reaction by stating, “I wasn’t happy with everything that was happening. There’s everything. I’m touched by it all. It’s not a sign of distrust. We had to remain humble. Not having the start to the season that I wanted. I was a little upset. The supporters are there to encourage us, why challenge them?”
Aubameyang concluded on a positive note, showing confidence in his abilities and future performance: “I know it will come. I’m not worrying too much.”
The 34-year-old has now scored five goals in four Europa League games (along with two in two Champions League qualification goals) but still has a solitary goal in 12 Ligue 1 appearances.
