Alex Iwobi will not be lifting his first European title this season or giving Arsene Wenger the proper parting gift after all, as Arsenal fell 2-1 on aggregate to Atletico Madrid in the semi-final of the Europa League.

Iwobi watched on from the bench as Arsenal suffered a 1-0 defeat at the Wanda Metropolitano on Thursday.

 


A solitary strike from former Chelsea striker, Diego Costa in additional time of the first half handed full advantage to Los Rojiblancos.

 

The Spanish side thus progressed 2-1 on aggregate following their 1-1 first-leg result at the Emirates last week.

 

Hence the 68-year-old Frenchman will bow out at the end of the season without a silverware in his final season at the club same as in his debut season.
