Arsenal coach, Unai Emery believes Alex Iwobi has improved since he took over the managerial reins of the North London club.
The Nigeria international has started 18 games for the Gunners in the Premier League this term and the Spanish tactician has been impressed by his overall contribution after naming him among the players that have taken their game to the next level.
‘’I want to create a team spirit and create one we feel together when winning and feel together when losing. We need to be one strong group with this mentality,’’ Emery told COPA90, according to Football London.
“Maybe Kolasinac, he is improving. Iwobi, Bernd Leno also is taking little by little more confidence and is stronger in the goal.
‘’Each player can help us improve 10, 15 or 20 per cent.”
However, former Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh believes Arsenal forward will be very key to Nigeria’s success at the 2019 Africa Cup Of Nations in Egypt should he play to his full potential.
Iwobi has scored five goals and provided two assists in 28 appearances for Nigeria since he made his international debut under Oliseh.
“With Iwobi playing the way he is, we would not be lacking, creatively, at the AFCON if he maintains his form,” Oliseh said.
