Arsenal star Nicolas Pepe revealed to be room-mate from hell over his SNORING sounding like motorbike engine
ARSENAL star Nicolas Pepe has been outed as the football room-mate from hell – because he snores so loudly he sounds like a motorbike.
The Gunners ace, 25, torments defenders with his skills on the wing.
But he is just as annoying for pals, according to international team-mate Wilfried Zaha.
The Crystal Palace forward, 28, says he was forced to ask bosses to let him move rooms after being paired with Pepe while on Ivory Coast duty.
Zaha told the On the Judy podcast: “Oh my days. Nicolas Pepe. I asked to leave the room.
“I went and asked to leave the room because he sounded like a motorbike.
“It was mad, it was crazy. I was like, ‘No’.
“These are the first times as well when I went [with Ivory Coast].
“They let me move and share rooms with Salomon Kalou. And he was like ‘Bro, I know.’”
And Pepe isn’t the only team-mate to get on Zaha’s nerves, either.

The Eagles ace has revealed Ravel Morrison trying to play like Ronaldinho led to the pair clashing on the pitch while on England Under-21s duty.
The two players shoved each other during the 5-0 win over Lithuania in 2013 as tempers boiled over between the two players.
And Zaha explained: “He was just getting me mad. He was moving like he was Ronaldinho and the rest of us were just no-one.
“He was getting the ball and he was just doing tricks and the only time he passes it if he really needs to.
“We’re just stood there with our hands on our hips while he’s going past six Lithuanian players.
“And it’s just like ‘what are you doing?’.
“It was that easy – the team that we had, we had such good players and we can all do that, we can all hog the ball and go past all of them but we’re not doing it.
“We’re trying to be professional, play properly but he was just on his own thing.
“I just had enough, I was like ‘what are you doing?’ and out of the blue he just pushed me.
“I’m like ‘are you dumb?’, so I pushed him back and it was just nonsense on the pitch then when you go inside the man is silent.”
