Ian Wright says that Pepe, Arsenal's winger needs better people around him.

Arsenal

’s bad start of the new season has not got better after they managed to only get one point against

Leeds United

. Two Premier League sides faced each other on Sunday and from the beginning it looked like

Leeds

going to dominate the game.

After

Pepe

’s red card, things got even worse for

Arsenal

. The Ivory Coast international was shown a straight red card for headbutting 

Ezgyjan Alioski

, having been handed a rare start ahead of Alexandre Lacazette.

Arteta

said after the game that he has spoken to

Pepe

about the incident and made it clear that these behaviors are not acceptable for him.

Ian Wright

also criticized

Pepe

and said that he needs better people to get advice from.

"I’m not saying that it’s a proper full-on headbutt but you can’t do that to people in this day and age," the Gunners legend told Premier League Productions. "You can’t get into people’s face like that. Alioski has gone down like he’s really got a proper headbutt but at the same time that’s just totally unprofessional and just poor from him.

"From somebody that has been complaining about not getting enough game time, somebody that has now got his chance and he’s let everybody down.

"He has let everybody down and I’m very disappointed in him simply because I don’t know who his team is around him but he’s come to the club, we’ve spent a lot of money on him.

"He’s someone that we have a lot of faith in and he seems to me that he’s not getting better, he’s actually getting more in himself and more frustrated, where you want to see him improving. He needs better advice around him."
