Marseille fans were starting to wonder whether Andre-Pierre Gignac was really worth the (EURO)16.5 million the club paid for him this summer, but the French striker is finally starting to silence his critics.
Gignac scored a hat trick in a 7-0 rout of Zilina in the Champions League on Wednesday, hitting form again at the right time ahead of Sunday's French league match at fierce rival Paris Saint-Germain.
Gignac had netted just once since joining Marseille from Toulouse, but scored with his right knee for the opening goal at Zilina then latched onto a precise pass before netting with a left-footed strike.
Marseille sits third in the French league standings with 18 points, two more than seventh-placed PSG, and is unbeaten at the Parc des Princes since a 2-1 loss six years ago.
