Iwobi Ready To Go Extra Mile For Wenger
The gains already made by Alex Iwobi in his club career is owed largely to Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger and the Nigeria international is not denying that fact.
With Wenger now signing a new two-year deal despite the huge cry by fans, Iwobi says he and his teammates will give the French coach all their support to ensure he wins all the silverware that has eluded him in the past years; especially the Premier League title.
"I’m backing Arsene Wenger to win the league title at Arsenal again. There won’t be a single player in our dressing room next season who will not fight for him. Iwobi was quoted as saying in The Sun.
He continued: “We’d run through brick walls for the boss. I’m pleased because he really is Mr Arsenal, isn’t he? He has made it the great institution it is today.
“He showed faith in me and gave me the opportunity to step into the first team after coming through the academy. Unfortunately, he has not tasted a Premier League title since 2004, but look what he has achieved in his time here.
“Even last weekend, he became the manager who has won the FA Cup seven times — more than any other. I’m happy he’s staying — so are the rest of the lads — because it’s good for the club, good for the team.”
Iwobi is presently on national duty with the Super Eagles.
