Ian Wright seems unhappy with Arsene Wenger‘s decision to still play Alex Iwobi on Wednesday against Chelsea FC following his recent party scandal, insisting that the Arsenal FC manager “should have had a stronger stance” on the Super Eagles star by leaving him out of Wednesday’s English League Cup semi-final clash against the blues.
Iwobi was reported to have been partying the night before Arsenal’s shocking FA Cup loss to Nottingham Forest on Sunday, where he gave a less-than-expected performance.
“For a youngster to do that says to me that there is something wrong in the dressing room,” Wright told SkySports. “You can’t have a youngster feeling like he can do that and still play. Arsene Wenger should have had a stronger stance on this one.”
Wright continued on the matter, “People laugh at Arsenal and see them as a bit of a joke at the moment. Players don’t want to be there, and it feels like everything is losing control at Arsenal.”
Meanwhile, Wenger has backed his decision to play the 21-year-old, saying, “It’s one thing to punish somebody individually and a second thing to punish everybody. If I think he can help the team to win it’s nothing to do with the fact he can be punished separately and individually.”
Do you think Alex Iwobi ought to be punished for partying days before playing a match? 🙁
