 The Spanish strategist is satisfied with what the student is showing on the training ground.

Pepe’s beautiful moments at Arsenal

Nicolas Pepe once brought great hope to Arsenal’s attack when he just moved to the Emirates in a contract of up to 72 million pounds. However, after a period of battle in the Gunners shirt, the Ivory Coast star is playing less and less.

This season, he has only scored 2 goals in all competitions. But despite the poor performance of the student, coach Mikel Arteta believes that Pepe has improved after focusing on the team to attend the AFCON period.

 Pepe’s form at AFCON gives Arteta hope.


Since he came back, I have seen another Nico, said the Arsenal captain.

“I don’t know why, maybe he realized how important the end of the season is for him. 

His attitude, his smile, the way he communicates with people, his energy. He has shown more efficiency during training. 

His energy has changed. I think he feels important again. Maybe he feels like he’s a player who can win tournaments and feels ‘ok, this is who I really am’.

He needs that and I’m really pleased with the performance from Pepe.”
