Pepe back amid in­jury fear

The Daily Telegraph - Sport - - Football -

Ni­co­las Pepe, the Ar­se­nal for­ward, has re­turned early from in­ter­na­tional duty with the Ivory Coast to work on build­ing up his match fit­ness. Ar­se­nal’s record sign­ing played the full 90 min­utes of the 2-2 draw with Tot­ten­ham on Sept 1 be­fore head­ing off to the Ivory Coast’s train­ing camp in Deauville. The Ivo­rian fed­er­a­tion said Pepe had been “in­jured with his club” and de­clared the prob­lem “late on Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon”. Pepe has re­turned to Eng­land, where he will con­tinue to work on his fit­ness at Ar­se­nal’s Lon­don Col­ney base ahead of the match at Wat­ford on Sept 15.
