I Hate Defending - Iwobi | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper


Nigerian starlet Alex Iwobi has stated his displeasure with defending.

Iwobi revealed that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has challenged him to work on the defensive side of his game.

The winger broke into the Gunners side last season following a string of impressive performances.
He was particularly in fine form for the club in their 3-0 win against London rivals, Chelsea at the Emirates last Saturday and was voted man of the match after the encounter.

However, despite the rave reviews he has enjoyed lately, the 20- year old admitted he still has a lot to learn.

"At the moment, because I'm not really the best at defending, he (Wenger) says I need to treat it how I treat attacking,"the Nigeria international told Newsbeat.

"And that's something that's really rung true with me"

"I love attacking, but I hate defending and it's something I need to add to my game."

Iwobi is expected to be in action on Wednesday when Arsenal take on Basel in a Champions League clash.
The North- London side are yet to taste glory in the competition, but Iwobi is more keen on winning the Premier League rather than Champions League.

"I want to win the Premier League. That would be an amazing feeling.

"But for the club the most important one has to be the Champions League.

"That's the big one, and to win that will be a dream come true."
