Iwobi: It is not Wenger’s fault, he deserves Arsenal fans’ respect

Arsenal atracker, Alex Iwobi, has absolved Arsene Wenger of the blames of the club’s ‘seemingly’ woeful run this season.

The attacker told Sportsmail after Nigeria’s 1-1 draw against Senegal that the fans need to be patient with the manager as the players and the club also want to win titles.

The 20-year-old however, suggested that the players not Frenchman should be blamed for the poor results as they are the ones who determine the outcome of any game.

“They need to have a bit more respect in my opinion.

“I mean, he’s been at the club for 20 years, he’s achieved a lot, obviously they’re a bit impatient with the results and where they want to finish.

“We also want to finish there, we want to win the league like anyone else, I can guarantee we are trying our hardest.

“Whatever happens we are the players, we affect the result. We don’t really look at the banners or what fans are screaming, we focus on trying to do our jobs on the pitch.”

Iwobi played 61 minutes in Nigeria’s friendly against Senegal on Thursday, with another friendly set to take place against Burkina Faso on Monday.
