Roy Keane: Saka looks more like a £72m forward than Pepe
- Pepe has become our most expensive signing ever.
- Roy Keane slams the Ivorian for a poor display in a 1-1 draw vs United.
- The United legend claims the 24-year-old didn't seem to be ready for the fight unlike Saka.
"Disappointed with him since he’s come to the club," Keane told Sky Sports after the final whistle at Old Trafford. "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 [£72m], 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."
No wonder Nicolas Pepe has got a lot of stick since joining Arsenal. The player hasn't struggled to adapt to the Premier League so far.
A performance vs United was another in line of poor showing he's put this campaign. The forward was subbed off in the second half being unable to make the difference up top.
