No regrets leaving Arsenal but it was not easy-Iwobi

Everton ace Alex Iwobi


Super Eagles winger Alex Iwobi has said as professionals, footballers should be able to cope with changes and challenges if they hope to excel.

Iwobi who spent 15 years at the Emirates before sealing  a £28million deadline day switch to Goodison Park in August 2019 said though it was fun while it lasted it was not necessarily a bed of roses at the Emirates.

The Nigeria international has his cousin and former Nigeria international Austin Okocha as his idol, said he did his best for the Gunners adding perhaps he could have done better.

He recalled that there were changes in roles and formations and methods depending on the approach of the manager but noted that there was no need to dwell on the past.

He told Sky Sports: “It’s tough going from that at Arsenal. One manager, obviously Unai Emery came, and yeah it was a bit different because there was a lot of different methods, things were getting changed, positions, formations, and I have had to play in numerous positions, so maybe I was a bit unsettled, but I don’t really want to say like an argument or problem because at the end of the day, as footballers, we should be able to cope with the situation.
