Super Eagles Star Iwobi Reveals How Mesut Ozil Made Him A Better Player

Arsenal star, Alex Iwobi has disclosed that fellow teammate, Mesut Ozil helped him to become a key player in Unai Emery’s squad at the Emirates.

The Nigerian international said that Ozil has been advising him since he was aged 17.

Iwobi, 22, stated this following Arsenal’s 3-1 win over Leicester City on Monday night in the Premier League fixture.

Goals from Mesut Ozil (1) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (2) ensured victory for the home side.

“I have been training with him [Ozil] since I was 17 and I have seen what he can do,” Sky Sports quoted Iwobi as saying.

“The quality he has is not just in training. He is a world-class player and he proved that again last night.

“He gives me advice in a different way.

“He jokes around but always tells me I can do more – even last night, he was saying I can do more, he is always one of those guys.

“But he is always happy, always telling me and giving me the confidence to express myself, so it helps me.

“Mesut will come across as laid back but he is helping everyone in a different way and he helps me a lot.”
