The last weeks have not been what Alex Iwobi had been dreaming of, he has played just 25 minutes in Arsenal’s last five matches, with Arsene Wenger ‘sending’ him to the reserves so as to get some game time, in their 5-2 win over Reading.
Should he push for a loan move next season? Should he accept a loan proposal by Arsenal? According to Austin Okocha, definitely not.
I think it’s better for him to stay at Arsenal, because the style of play suits him perfectly
Nigeria’s legend told Sky Sports, insisting that Iwobi’s place is at Arsenal, if he really means to have a career at the highest possible level.
It might not be easy for him to go on loan and adapt somewhere else. He needs to stay and fight for his shirt
Okocha said, understanding, though, Wenger, and his decision to limit Iwobi’s game time these last weeks.
We can’t forget that this is his first full season in the first team and Arsenal have all their players back now. There’s a lot of competition, so it’s not easy
the former Nigeria international thinks, urging his young compatriot and nephew to stay put and give his all at Arsenal.
