My Confidence Must Come Back For Me To Play Well For Arsenal – Pepe

PepearsenalArsenal winger, Nicolas Pepe has come out to say he has lost some confidence as a player.

The youngster joined the Gunners from Lille recently in a £72 million ($88m) move after a dazzling season in which he scored netted 22 league goals in 38 games.

However, the Ivorian is yet to light up London as everyone expected. He has scored just one penalty after 8 matches for Arsenal.

Reacting to this recently, Pepe admitted that he has lost confidence and it is affecting his performance on the pitch.

His words, “The truth is that my first few weeks in Premier League are not easy,”

“I think that I haven’t performed well enough yet.

“In terms of stats or my impact on the game, for sure it’s not the same as in Lille last season or against Liverpool at the beginning of the season.

“It’s a matter of confidence. My confidence must come back. I’m not worried about it. Probably some people are worried with my stats, but I’m not.”

“The only thing I have to do is to continue to work hard because it is obvious the level here is higher,”

“The language is different. It’s a new league. For sure everything is different for me. I must adapt quickly but I’m confident it’s gonna happen soon.”

On Arsenal’s form, “Overall, it’s a good start for Arsenal this season, we are in the good part of the table,”

“Against Aston Villa, we came back despite the fact we were one man down, this is one of those games which gives the team confidence and mental strength.

“At Old Trafford, we are behind but we manage to tie the game. For sure we are strong mentally and we have to continue building that strength in order to win away games and then be a contender for a Champions League spot at the end of the season.”
