Arsenal Fans Liken Alex Iwobi to Lionel Messi

Alex Iwobi was the toast of Arsenal Fans at Craven Cottage and on Social Media after the team’s 5-1 victory over Fulham in the Premier League on Sunday; some even compared him to Lionel Messi .

Iwobi, who has shown a great deal of improved form under new Boss Unai Emery, put in a scintillating display as the Gunners smashed their London rivals.

 


The Nigerian did not get on the score sheet, nor did he provide an assist in the win, but his contributions earned him praise; such as been seen for the most of this early days in the season.

 

As per @Layth [Mail Sport], Arsenal head coach Unai Emery deserves huge credit for the turnaround in the form of Alex Iwobi. I remember covering him play well at Barcelona v Arsenal in 2016 then scoring at Everton 72 hours later. A talent who lost his way badly. Amazing what a tougher training regime can do.

Twitter user @_Zeets tweeted a video of the Nigerian nutmeg an opponent with the caption :

Iwobi: “The paradox of education is precisely this – that as one begins to become conscious one begins to examine the society in which he is being educated.”

Another tweet accompanied with a video of the winger’s contribution to Arsenal’s first goal read:

Ïwobi’s decision making this season has been top notch. He doesn’t hold to the ball unnecessarily. Drives the team forward and passes at the right time to the right player.
