Under-performing Arsenal Nigerian forward Alex Iwobi who has been demoted to the U-23s has received backing from his first team teammate Granit Xhaka.
Iwobi has failed to hit same height like last season around this time of the year last year , when he broke into the first team of Arsenal. A form which has made him the target of fans of the club as Arsenal continue their struggle to break into the top four.
Xhaka is however of a different opinion regarding the potentials of the Nigerian, as according to him the 20 year old stunned him when he first came to the club , before adding that Iwobi has all what is needed in a forward.
“Alex Iwobi. I wouldn’t say it’s a surprise but I didn’t know much about him before I signed. He’s one of the best young players and he’s got everything you’d want in an attacker; fast, strong & a great finisher”, Xhaka said.
