Manchester United legend Roy Keane has hit out at Arsenal winger Nicolas Pepe following his performance on Monday night at Old Trafford.
Pepe, who joined Arsenal during the summer in a reported fee of £72 million has been struggling in Gunners' jersey. The 24-year-old was once again given a chance to impress, starting for Arsenal on Monday night as his side settled for a 1-1 draw with Manchester United. And now Keane says he isn't impressed with the start of Pepe.
"Disappointed with him since he’s come to the club," he told Sky Sports.
"Not great body language… okay, sometimes we make excuses for players a lot, it takes time to settle into a club. You see this young kid tonight [Saka], Pepe compared to him for the money they paid, he needs to do a lot more."
"His work rate, his lack of quality, end product, his body language. ‘He didn’t seem up for the fight tonight."
