Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi says he is not keen on wearing the number ten jersey of the Super Eagles like his uncle Austin Okocha during his time with the senior national team of Nigeria.
During the press conference of the team earlier today, Iwobi was asked if he is keen on inheriting the shirt number which is currently the number of captain of the team John Obi Mikel.
” I’m not keen about the number ten jersey, I wear 18 with the Super Eagles, and 17 at Arsenal. So for me, it doesn’t matter. But it will be great to achieve what my uncle achieved with the Nigerian team because he was a legend for the Super Eagles”, Iwobi said.
” In regards to the shirt, I’m not really fazed about the shirt. If I get number 10, I get it. All I know is I’m here to represent my country and I’m proud to wear the colours. I’m not really fazed about what shirt (number) I’m wearing and really my uncle (Okocha) does not pressure me. I mean, I focus on myself “. He concluded.
