Arsenal and Super Eagles of Nigeria player, Alex Iwobi has spoken on his past trying times at Arsenal where he was almost not needed.

According to Iwobi, he was refused a new deal and was told he could leave the club to the point that he started looking for offer elsewhere.

“My situation was weird,” Iwobi said in an Arsenal matchday programme interview

“There was three of us at the time and we were basically told ‘stay if you want, or if not you are free to go.”

“It was up to me and at that moment I went to the Crystal Palace training ground to see them.

“I had offers from Celtic and Southampton as well. Celtic was the main one but I wasn’t ready to go to Scotland. I thought it was best to stay at Arsenal but I have to say it felt weird.

“I was playing for England but I felt maybe I wasn’t rated. My England team-mates and everyone else was getting in my ear saying that Arsenal don’t love me because they weren’t offering me a deal.

“It was hard especially because at school as well everyone was talking about it.”
