Arsenal Legend Thierry Henry Blames Iwobi For PSG Goal


Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has faulted Nigeria international Alex Iwobi for the goal conceded by Arsenal in their 1-1 draw against PSG in their opening UEFA Champions League clash.


PSG took an early lead just 44 seconds into the game, when Edinson Cavani headed home a pin point cross from Serge Aurier who had all of the time he needed to whip in the cross.

Henry speaking as a Television pundit blamed Iwobi for not tracking his man, which left full back Nacho Monreal exposed to the threat of PSG from the right.

” Iwobi should have been on Aurier, he didn’t track his man. Some little discipline you need as a winger which I believe he has learnt from the game. He had a good game overall. His confidence on the ball and ability to thread passes is such a beauty to behold” He said.

” In the second half, he gave a better display playing from the right and Alexis Sanchez has pure class when it comes to using the ball in the opponent’s half”.
