Thank You Arsene Wenger

Arsenal Boss Professor Arsene Wenger is Renowned for grooming young talented players over with the likes of Cesc Fabregas,Carlos Vela,Jack Wilshere,Theo Walcott,Carl Jekinson,Hector Bellerin.

Alex Iwobi joined the club at age five with lots of potentials aiming to develop his raw skills, he was a terrific dribbler just like Uncle Austin Jay Jay Okocha.
Iwobi was not the face of the Academy or the next big thing in the Academy with the likes of Chuks Aneke,Chuba Akpom,Serge Gnabry all above him in terms of development and hype.

Wenger Saw Something in him and always slot him in the developments puzzle,The first job was to weed off the showboating in his game and he was instructed to keep things simple the Arsenal way I.e Pass and Move.

Alexander was tested in defence, midfield and attack in various youths competitions due to instructions, commands and supervision of Professor Wenger.
A problem Occurred sometimes back that nearly make iwobi's dad to remove Alex from Arsenal Academy but for the timely intervention of Wenger who believed so much in him.

International Allegiance : There is always concerns for Big European Clubs for having African players in their Ranks because of the Africa Cup of Nations and allowing them to leave in January of every two years.

Amaju Pinnick Went to England to see Arsene Wenger concerning having Iwobi and Chuba Akpom to play for Nigeria,Wenger in his part tried his best by stopping Iwobi from honouring Under 23 invitations outside the international Windows and for England to stop him but Nigeria Succeeded in giving him an invitation and capping him against Egypt.

We can now see the reasons why Wenger prefer Alex ahead of Several talented players in the Academy,Arsenal Fans are now comparing him with Hleb and Nasri while Ozil compared him with Okocha and Dennis Bergkamp.

Thank You Mr.Wenger !!!
