Pepe: ‘I don’t know why I’m benched’

Posted on 23/10/2010


Simone Pepe has complained about his treatment at Juventus. “I don’t know why I’m not first choice any more.”

The former Udinese winger was brought in during the summer as part of a reinforcement campaign, but has struggled to impress.

“I know that I haven’t played well so far,” he confessed to La Stampa newspaper.

“I am getting back to work in order to earn my place back. I don’t know why I’m not first choice any more.

“I can’t explain it, even if it is easy to discuss things with Coach Gigi Del Neri.”

Pepe left the door open to a possible change to his tactics, one that Gianluca Zambrotta already did at this club many years ago.

“If I was asked to play as a full-back then I’d be ready. Sometimes I think about that as a project for the future.”
