'I have Achieved Beyond My Expectations' - Alex Iwobi
Nigeria’s Alex Iwobi, In an interview with , he stated: “I never thought I would be here at the age of 20,
it’s an amazing feeling to have made more than 50 appearances for Arsenal,” Iwobi said. “It is
just the start of my career basically, so I just need to get more goals, more assists and make more appearances and do my best for the team.
Iwobi whose impact in Arsenal FC cannot be overlooked could not help but to mention two of his team mates who have been a source of inspiration to him.
He said: “The manager, everyone – even the players – have all given me advice on what to do, helping me on and off the pitch. Everyone has helped get to where I am today.
“[The biggest influence on me] would probably be Jack Wilshere, but he has not been around recently. He talks to me off the pitch because he has been through the same system as me, I just watch what he does – especially as I grew up as a No 10 and he’s a No 10.
“Now I would say it is Francis Coquelin, he is always talking to me. After the Watford game he
told me what I did well, and what I need to improve on. He’s definitely one who keeps me in check.”
Alexander Iwobi is the nephew of Football Legend and Dribbling wizard, Austin Jay Jay Okocha.
