Arsenal fans rip into Alex Iwobi after comments made about Wilfried Zaha deal

Alex Iwobi has been at the centre of an attack from Arsenal fans on Twitter who have questioned the winger’s mentality after comments he made about a possible deal for Wilfried Zaha.

In an exclusive report from The Sun, Iwobi claimed he was ready to compete for his place but would leave if he didn’t get opportunities to play. He said:

“I am up for the fight but the only time I would consider leaving is if I am not playing as much as I would like to.”

However, the fact the Nigerian was ready to battle for a spot doesn’t seem to have been digested by a host of supporters who took to social media to lay into him for what he said.

One fan said the fact he could leave was the best news ever whilst another Gooner claimed Iwobi had embarrassed himself.

The 23-year-old was also branded as useless as a further fan said he had a loser mentality.

Iwobi had a fairly average season in 2018/19, scoring just three league goals in 35 games as well as claiming six assists.

Zaha, meanwhile, has been the subject of a £40m bid from Arsenal this summer.

Here’s the best of the reaction.
