Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has offered his support to Ivorian winger Nicolas Pepe, who has come under fire after being sent off against Leeds United on Sunday.
Pepe was shown a red card after appearing to have knocked Ezgjan Alioski off the ball.
« No, it is absolutely not [the end of his Arsenal career after the red card], » said Arsenal. com quote saying Arteta after being asked about the winger’s future.
“I will give Nico my full support all the time. He knows where to improve and we all know his qualities. He has a certain responsibility, I have a huge responsibility, which is to get the best out of him and find the best position for him, the best areas where he can do what he can do with the ball. I can’t fault his efforts at all, ”added the Arsenal manager.
Arteta’s recent comments seem to contradict his initial reaction after Arsenal decided to tie the game against Leeds.
Speaking immediately after the game, he described Pepe’s headbutt as « unacceptable » and accused him of « abandoning the team ». .
Pepe have tried to replicate the form in which Arsenal signed him from Ligue 1 team Lille for £ 72million.
The Ivorian has played 50 times for North London in all competitions since arriving, scoring 10 times.
