Alex Iwobi reckons it would be a ‘banter’ if Arsene Wenger was a secret FIFA player, sitting down at his PS4 or xBox to play the popular video game, and says that he’d love to take him on if so.
The exciting youngster was talking to BBC’s Newsbeat, and when asked if he thought the boss was a FIFA guru, said, “I don’t know. I’d be surprised if he has played FIFA but if he has then that’s banter.
“I’d like to take him on, yeah.”
Gotta say, we like the idea of Wenger being a late-night aficionado of the EA Sports game, making people rage-quit the world over.
Iwobi also talked about the influence Wenger has had on him as a player and says the Frenchman will help him improve the weaknesses in his game.
“At the moment, because I’m not really the best at defending,” he said. “He says I need to treat it how I treat attacking.
“And that’s something that’s really rung true with me. I love attacking, but I hate defending and it’s something I need to add to my game.”
