Nigeria forward Alex Iwobi has reached out to Arsenal fans, urging them to maintain faith in the team following the disheartening 1-0 defeat to North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in Saturday’s Premier League clash. Spurs secured a well-deserved victory, with league top scorer Harry Kane’s 49th-minute header proving to be the decisive factor.
The result propelled Tottenham Hotspur to fourth place, establishing a seven-point lead over Arsenal with 52 points in the league table. Despite the setback, Iwobi, who entered the game in the second half, expressed solidarity with the fans through his Instagram account. He conveyed a message of understanding, acknowledging the disappointment fans are experiencing.
In his Instagram post, Iwobi shared, “Being an Arsenal fan myself, Saturday’s defeat was very disappointing and hard to take. I know it’s hard to believe, but we know exactly how you are feeling. We have another match in a few days, and trust me, we’ll be putting in 100% to try and make this right. Massive love to all our fans for your support. #BIG17.”
The heartfelt message from Iwobi reflects the team’s commitment to rectifying their performance in the upcoming Europa League round-of-32 clash against Swedish club Oestersunds on Thursday. Arsenal fans, despite the recent setback, can find solace in Iwobi’s reassurance and the team’s dedication to turning the tide in their favor.
