Former Arsenal midfield dynamo Ray Parlour has provided an explanation as to why manager of Arsenal Arsene Wenger can’t afford to drop Alex Iwobi out of his starting line up, despite the not too impressive form of the 20 year old.
Iwobi has not been at his best for the Gunners in the last one month, and his inconsistency has lead to calls for him to be dropped by the manager.
However Parlour is off a different opinion as he believes Wenger can’t afford to drop the Nigeria international due to his qualities, which is a plus to the team even when he is not at his best.
” He’s an up and coming star, he really is. I really like the way he plays and he deserves his spot at the minute. He’s improving all the time, he’s comfortable on the ball, he can see a pass. His footwork is excellent for a big lad”, Parlour said.
” He has to keep his feet on the ground and keep working hard and I’m sure he’ll be a massive star for Arsenal. The most important thing is he’s playing week in, week out and at the moment it’s hard for Arsene Wenger to leave him out”.
