I Must Put In More Effort To Play Regularly At Arsenal – Alex Iwobi


Arsenal FC of England midfield star Alex Iwobi says he has no choice but to do more as a midfielder if he would play regularly in his club. In an interview with Evening standard, Iwobi said the coaches were right in overlooking him to start games, because there were other players who were more committed.

“It was hard but something I had to learn from,” he said.
“If you are not performing consistently at a club like Arsenal, then there are other players ready to take the opportunity — which I learned the tough way.
“I wasn’t involved as much as I wanted to be but I just had to be patient, still have the same attitude, work hard in training and wait for my chance again. That’s what I’ve been doing.
“Obviously, I am an attacking player, so when you are an attacking player, you need to create goals and get goals — and that’s the main thing for me.
“People in my position were doing better than me in that aspect of the game, which is to eventually win games, and that’s something I had to work on.
“At the end of the day, there could be injuries which come left, right and centre.
“So you might be chucked in to play a Premier League game or on the Thursday in the Europa League. No matter the situation, you have to be ready for it.”
