I’m not comfortable sitting on the bench – Alex Iwobi

Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi has said he is not comfortable sitting on the bench anymore.


The Super Eagles forward last played for Arsene Wenger’s side on April 2, in their 2-2 draw with Manchester City at the Emirates. The 21-year-old came on for the last 13 minutes of the match.

Iwobi has played 24 Premier League games for the Gunners this season.

“No player will feel comfortable sitting on the bench,” Iwobi said in an interview on Sky Sports’ Premier League Fan Zone.

“I have been an unused substitute since the last four games. I wish to return against United. I am fit, I know my worth. I love to play all the time. We are currently battling for the EPL top four log and I hope things change for better.

“No one thinks we can keep battling till this moment. We have had a good start and I hope we finish well.

“I will be glad to see us finish in a good position. I can’t imagine myself watching from distance in the next coming games.

“The fans think I’m not fit, they have forgotten Wenger has changed his tactics and formation from the one I used to know. I keep my hope alive for the next game.

“I have no other club. London is my home. I have no choice than to keep fighting for shirt. I will never quit Arsenal no matter what till I got it right.”
