The Nigerian international Alex Iwobi has revealed that it is a privilege to be playing with German football star Mesut Ozil at Premier League club Arsenal.
The German Star, Mesut Ozil produced world class performance on Monday night, October 22, at the Emirates stadium as Arsenal came back from a goal down to beat Leicester City 3-1.
The Midfielder scored the Gunners’ first and also helped create Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s quick-fire double, two brilliant team goals.
“Of course I get the privilege to play with him every day. I have been training with him since I was 17 and I have seen what he can do.
“The quality he has is not just in training but as you can see in the match last night, he is a world-class player and he proved that again last night.
“He jokes around but always tell me I can do more – even last night he was saying I can do more, he is always one of those guys.
“But he is always happy, always telling me and giving me the confidence to express myself so it helps me.
“It is not just him who is captain, there are lots of leaders from the keeper to even Laca, we are a team who just like to help each other so we are always giving information and communicating,” Iwobi explained according to UK Mirror.
Alex Iwobi also explained that Unai Emery’s trust in him has given him more confidence this season in the Premier League.
“He has just given me confidence to express myself, to believe in my ability which I have been trying to show.
“In training he is always letting me try new things, be positive, be direct and prove it in the game. It is working for me so I just have to keep it going,”.
Meanwhile, Former Arsenal forward and Nigeria legend, Kanu Nwankwo could not hide his excitement as the Gunners romped to victory over Leicester City in the Premier League on Monday.
From back to front, with 14 passes and a dummy, Arsenal’s third goal in the 3-1 win over Leicester was simply superb.
Mesut Ozil was at the centre of the move midway through the second half, with a fine flick in midfield, followed by a dummy and eventual assist for sub Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang to turn home into an empty net.
