Super Eagles forward, Alex Iwobi has charged Arsenal fans to show some respect on team’s manager, Arsene Wenger.
Iwobi was in the starting line up in Nigeria’s 1-1 draw against the Teranga Lions of Senegal in an international friendly match at the Hive Stadium on Wednesday.
Alex Iwobi has called on Arsenal fans to ‘have a bit more respect’ for Arsene Wenger, and insisted that players at the club still back their manager.
The Arsenal boss is under huge pressure following a string of poor results, with large sections of supporters calling for the manager’s head.
‘They need to have a bit more respect in my opinion,’ he told Sportsmail after Nigeria’s friendly draw with Senegal on Thursday night.
‘I mean, he’s been at the club for 20 years, he’s achieved a lot, obviously they’re a bit impatient with the results and where they want to finish. We also want to finish there, we want to win the league like anyone else, I can guarantee we are trying our hardest.
‘Whatever happens we are the players, we affect the result. We don’t really look at the banners or what fans are screaming, we focus on trying to do our jobs on the pitch.’
