HAT-TRICK hero Emiliano Marcondes admits he is not expecting a gift from his father after netting his first professional hat-trick, revealing how he used to receive three krone for every treble he netted in his youth career!

Midfielder Marcondes had only struck eight goals in English football prior to Saturday's FA Cup third-round clash at Yeovil Town.

Seven of those came during his time at Brentford, with the Dane's only previous Cherries goal coming on the opening day of the Championship campaign, against West Bromwich Albion.

Hvidovre-born Marcondes did enjoy prolific spells in front of goal prior to joining the Bees in January 2018, netting 30 times in his final 18 months for Nordsjaelland.

However, the 3-1 win at Huish Park marked the first time the 26-year-old had managed a treble in his professional career.

Asked if there was anyone who he would like to dedicate the landmark moment in his career to, Marcondes told the Daily Echo: "There’s a lot of people. I remember my dad actually when I was younger, he gave me one krone every time I scored, so he gave me three krone every time I scored a hat-trick.

"I don’t even know what that is, half a pound!? For three goals.

"When I was younger I was a striker, so I scored a bit more than now. But hopefully I can continue.

"I don’t think my dad will pay me any more!"

Marcondes produced two clinical finishes to put Cherries 2-0 up at half-time at Huish Park, before a poacher's effort to complete his treble with 20 minutes to play, after Jamal Lowe's shot was saved by goalkeeper Dillon Barnes.

Asked if he was thinking of completing his hat-trick at the break having already netted twice, Marcondes admitted: "Yeah, you always think about getting the hat-trick.

"And some of the guys were praising me, to get another one in the second half. I was lucky and hoped for the ball to drop at my feet, so I was happy.

"This is my first hat-trick. I got a lot of braces in Denmark when I played there, but finally I got the hat-trick."

Marcondes has had to be patient in recent months, waiting for his chances in Scott Parker's side.

Having played in a key role in the early weeks of the campaign, the former Denmark under-21 star was an unused substitute for 10 matches in succession.

He finally came off the bench for his first minutes in more than two months, before returning to the starting line-up for the 1-1 draw at fellow Championship promotion hopefuls Fulham at the beginning of December.

Marcondes immediately dropped out of the side again, before completing the full 90 minutes against Yeovil.

Discussing the past few months, Marcondes said: "I always want to stay ready and try and push the others in training as well.

"We have one goal together, which is to get promoted. Even if I am coming off the bench or starting, it’s still the same - trying to keep positive and going in the same direction as the team.

"So that’s my mindset and I try to work hard every day."
