Unable to convince since arriving at Arsenal for 80 million euros in the summer of 2019, Nicolas Pepe was still disappointed against Leeds (0-0) this Sunday in the Premier League. Uninspired and defeated by the cross at the beginning of the game, the Gunners’ striker was provoked by Azgjan Alioski, who tickled him several times during the game. And in the end, the Ivorian national lost his temper, giving the Macedonian a butt of his head when he returned from the locker room!
Even if the force of the blow was very light, and the opponent added a lot, this gesture remains reprehensible, and it logically earned the former Lille a red card after the VAR intervention. An evening to forget for Elephant, who left his team at ten o’clock for more than half an hour.
NOT THIS NICHOLAS, NOT TODAY OR NOW AFTER EVERYTHING YOU HAVE DONE PEPE 😭😭 pic.twitter.com/n7O5fAUpFS
