After the red card against Leeds, Michael Arteta told Nicolas Pepe that his Arsenal fate was entirely in his hands.
Pep is on the verge of recovering himself from Arsenal ‘s Europa League draw at Moldova on Thursday following the unnecessary dismissal of Leeds midfielder Esjan Alioski for a head butt.
After the game, Arteta was sacked from Pete, saying his actions were unacceptable and that he had ‘dropped the team’.

But he wants to move on after Pepe apologizes privately and publicly on social media.
The 25-year-old winger has failed to live up to his $ 72 million mark since joining Arsenal, although his talent is showing signs of abating but not on a permanent basis.
Arjetta strongly rejected the notion that Sunday’s event had changed his Arsenal future, but he acknowledged that his demands would be high, and that no doubt Pepe’s abilities, the Ivory Coast player should be prepared to see them.
Arrotta said: ‘He needs to feel like the club and I are going to protect him, and we’ll give him time. He needed time last year to adapt to the Premier League, a new city, a new language and a new environment, and you can see how he started playing at the end of the season.

” The need for him, with his ability – I’m going to ask a lot, because I know what he’s able to do, and he needs to deal with it.
‘I think he’s handling it the right way, he had a reaction the other day, it’s completely different from the outside when you try to figure it out on that pitch, but he’s responding properly and I hope I can see a player who shows up every week. It’s in his hands, honestly.
‘This is a player I really like, I know what he can give us, it’s completely below him.
The club made a huge investment in him and obviously people expect a lot from him because he has this advantage. As I have said many times, when you have to create with strikers and attackers, the most difficult thing is to be consistent when unlocking the door and scoring goals and making assists.
” That’s why he’s here, he has to accept that challenge and go for it. We need to give him the best possible conditions to do that.
Pepe cut a lone figure as he moved up the empty stands on Elland Road.
‘The way he apologized, he understood his responsibility, with hope [against Molde] We can see the player we want to see, have a good response and help the team. ‘
When the Leeds game was just the start of his second Premier League, Pepe caught attention in Europe, scoring two of his three goals and two assists coming into the Europa League this season.
Arsenal, the Group B leaders, can look to qualify for the knockout stages.
With the busy December schedule in mind, Arteta urged his players to complete the task at the earliest possible opportunity.
He said: ‘When you have the opportunity to capture something in football, do it in that moment. Because, in a week, in two weeks, you never know what’s going to happen in any game.
“There’s a lot of things that can happen, so I’m telling players: when you have it, you can do it today, do it, and then forget about it and move on.”
