Iwobi: We’ll run through walls for Wenger

Alex Iwobi is sure boss Arsene Wenger signing a new two-year deal does not mean more of the same old Arsenal next season.

The Gunners winger, 21, has vowed he and his team-mates will ‘run through brick walls’ for the Frenchman — and that ‘winning the Premier League title is the clear target’.

Iwobi claims the team will be hurting all summer after failing to qualify for the Champions League and there is a steely determination to put right last season’s wrongs.

The stunning FA Cup final triumph against Chelsea and a strong finish to the Premier League season masked what was an otherwise poor campaign.

It led to “Wenger Out” protests from some fans that the Arsenal manager branded a “disgrace” that he “will never forget”.

But Iwobi said: “I’m backing Arsene Wenger to win the league title at Arsenal again. There won’t be a single player in our dressing room next season who will not fight for him.

“We’d run through brick walls for the boss. I’m pleased because he really is Mr. Arsenal, isn’t he? He has madeit the great institution it is today.

“He showed faith in me and gave me the opportunity to step into the first team after coming through the academy. Unfortunately, he has not tasted a Premier League title since 2004, but look what he has achieved in his time here.

“Even last weekend, he became the manager who has won the FA Cup seven times — more than any other. I’m happy he’s staying — so are the rest of the lads — because it’s good for the club, good for the team.”
