It truly is a disgrace that issues haven’t labored out for Pepe at Arsenal.

A transfer away this summer time made a whole lot of sense for everybody. Pepe is now again in France – a league through which he made the world rise up and take discover of him in his closing season at Lille, the place he scored 23 targets and supplied 12 assists.

He might develop into a celebrity once more in France, however regardless of what occurs there, it appears fairly clear that he doesn’t have a future at Arsenal.
