Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has jumped in defense of Super Eagles young star Alex Iwobi, who has received criticisms for his poor performances lately for the gunners.
Iwobi who has been demoted to the Arsenal u-23 squad, is fighting to get a recall to the first team of Arsenal.
Xhaka was quick to remind Arsenal fans of the qualities of the young star.
“Alex Iwobi. I wouldn’t say it’s a surprise but I didn’t know much about him before I signed. He’s one of the best young players and he’s got everythingt in an attacker; fast, strong & a great finisher”, said Xhaka.
Iwobi will be hoping for a return to the Arsenal first team squad in their next premier league match on Monday against Middlesbrough.
