Arsenal FC forward and Nigeria international, Alex Iwobi says an increase in confidence has been key to his rise at Arsenal this season after what he described as “a bumpy ride” earlier in his career.
The 20-year-old made his Arsenal debut last October and has gone on to make 20 appearances in all competitions, scoring twice, as well as breaking into the Nigeria squad at international level.
The young striker who is related to former Nigeria international and captain of the Super Eagles, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha, revealed further that it feels like Arsenal are in his blood and is thrilled to have developed his game to a point where he can make an impact at the highest level.
“I have seen the picture of me [signing as a child] in the yellow top,” he told the club’s official website.
“I remember signing – that moment was crazy, I remember smiling so much. My mum and dad were proud of me and they were there waiting for me.
“It has been a bumpy ride [since then]. It has been a rollercoaster with a lot of ups and a few downs that I have had to get over in the past.
