Oh so now you’ve come around to Pepe not being some head case who spirals into a deep trauma when he’s not starting a game ( Glad you listened!) you’ve conveniently switched to the possibility of him being a tower of mental fortitude all along and is actually motivated by adversity and disappointment. As long as it has nothing to do with man management eh?A lot of assumption here. Last time Pepe complained about his bench role, he started and got sent off. He probably learned not to do that again.
You Arteta guys are so quick to credit everything good Pepe does to the manager.
How do we know a lot of his motivation could be professional pride being dented due to teenagers upstaging him for periods of the season?
Pires coming out and saying he’s not suited to the league?
But no, let’s immediately credit his uptick in form on Arteta’s amateur Jedi mind tricks.
