‘Sad Truth’ ‘Harsh But Fair, Unfortunately’ Fans Respond As Carragher Names Arsenal Star ‘Who’s Never Going To Be Good Enough’

‘Sad Truth’ ‘Harsh But Fair, Unfortunately’ Fans Respond As Carragher Names Arsenal Star ‘Who’s Never Going To Be Good Enough’

Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher did not hold back in his criticism of Arsenal winger Nicolas Pepe following his poor display in the 3-0 defeat to Liverpool at the weekend.

Speaking about the club-record signing, Carragher said that the Ivorian international simply hasn’t lived up to expectations since arriving from Lille in 2019, and he can’t see him ever succeeding at the Emirates:

“Nicolas Pepe, the thing with him is not so much age, he’s just not good enough and he’s never going to be good enough.”


A lot of supporters on Twitter thought Carragher’s criticism of Pepe was too strong, although many admit that it is hard to argue with the fact that he hasn’t delivered with his performances on the pitch:

Carragher’s comments are a tad harsh. The 25-year-old has improved since the New Year and his eight goals in 36 appearances isn’t a terrible record.

Saying that, though, there’s no doubt that the Gunners overpaid when they signed Pepe for £72m. He has not delivered on a consistent basis and his anonymous display on Saturday was a case in point.
