Iwobi is not putting in his best – Rohr


Gernot Rohr has observed that Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi plays differently when he is in the Nigerian camp.

Iwobi was a hero of Nigerians scoring the only goal that booked Nigeria’s place at the Russia 2018 World Cup against a difficult Zambian side even with an outstanding away game against Algeria in the qualifying series.

However, a host of Arsenal fans recently invaded twitter hitting club manager, Arsene Wenger, for keeping faith with the youngster. Now, Rohr draws the line when he told the Evening Standard:

”With us all the time he’s very good, already in Poland and he was fantastic against Serbia,” Rohr noted.

“Perhaps some times [he did]a little too much individually, he wanted to make a show. We prefer collective football.

”But when he can eliminate his opponent it’s very good. He’s with us all the time in confidence. He’s free when he has the ball.

“I don’t know what the tactical options of Arsene Wenger are when he’s with Arsenal but with us he’s free offensively and he can show all his qualities.”

Iwobi, raised in England, had the option of playing for England but family intervention ensured he played representative football for Nigeria. Barring major injury, he is one of the Eagles sure bets for the World Cup, which will be his first major championship of his international career.
