Arsenal legend Ian Wright has insisted that Arsene Wenger ‘should have had a stronger stance’ on Alex Iwobi by leaving him out of Wednesday’s English League Cup semi-final clash against Chelsea.
The Super Eagles forward was reported to have been partying the night before Arsenal’s shocking FA Cup loss to Nottingham Forest on Sunday, where he gave an underwhelming performance.
He was again on parade for the full 90 minutes as the Emirates Stadium outfit held Antonio Conte’s men to a 0-0 stalemate at the Stamford Bridge.
“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.”
“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.”
