Show Patience With Pepe, Zaha Tells Arsenal Fans

Crystal Palace winger and Arsenal summer target Wilfried Zaha has urged Gunners’ fans to bepatient with record signing Nicolas Pepe, having struggled in his short time at the Emirates Stadium.

Pepe arrived at the Emirates in the summer from Ligue 1 side Lille after scoring 22 goals and providing 11 assists in the French league last season.

However, Pepe’s performances for Arsenal so far this season have been met with criticism, as the 24-year-old has scored once in the Premier League (from the penalty spot against Aston Villa), and has provided two assists.

Zaha, who plays for the Ivory Coast with Pepe, has insisted that he needed time to adapt to the Premier League before he could reproduce the form that saw the club pay a club record £72 million for his services.

“I see the social media, I see everything and it’s a thing where he needs time. He’s come from another league, he’s young,” Zaha told the BBC.

“There’s this price tag that he has not put on himself, people have put that on him because of his performances, so you’ve got to give him time for him to reproduce that, it’s not going to come like that.

“I have got nothing but faith in him, I’ve got confidence that he will produce the same thing that he did before, because we both play for Ivory Coast, I’ve seen the talent he’s got, but not everyone sees it.”
