- The Ivorian has so far come on as a sub in both our games.
- The manager admits the 24-year-old could get more minutes on Saturday.
- However, the Spaniard wants the singer to settle in first.
- He believes the club needs to treat the player as a human above all.
Speaking ahead of the Liverpool game, Unai Emery dwelled on Nicolas Pepe’schances of starting.
“The most important thing is, like a person, to help him and his family to feel comfortable here.
“Now he is three weeks into working here with us. He didn’t do the pre-season here but he’s progressively feeling better. For example, in the first match, he played 15 minutes in Newcastle, then he played 45 minutes against Burnley.
“I think his individual performances are progressively getting better. For Saturday, he is maybe ready to have more minutes.
“I am going to decide tomorrow, but really his progress has been positive and has been good for the team and for him.
“The most important piece of the adaptation is to help him to feel easy and be comfortable with us.”
