Arsenal have a special player in Iwobi – Pires

Former Arsenal midfielder, Robert Pires believes Alex Iwobi has a very good vision and mentality anytime he’s with the ball for the Gunners.

Iwobi made an instant impact in Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Watford in Saturday’s Premier League game at the Emirates, where he created the cross for Craig Cathcart’s own goal and also playing a role in the build-up to Mesut Ozil’s second.

Pires said: ‘I know just one thing, I told him after the game he made the difference,’ Pires told Standard Sport. ‘He’s a great player, very fast.

‘He finds good solutions on the field with his vision. He has good mentality and spirit. Of course, he’s young but he’s learning very quickly.

‘Arsenal with Alex Iwobi and Alex Iwobi with Arsenal have a good future.’
