Everton star, Alex Iwobi has disclosed that Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, helped him to become a key player today.
Iwobi said this ahead of Everton’s Premier League clash with Arsenal on Saturday evening.
“I wouldn’t be where I am today, so I am forever grateful for the opportunity they [Arsenal] gave me,” Iwobi told Sky Sports.
“I can look at everyone, Arsene Wenger, Unai Emery. Even current manager Mikel Arteta, when I was playing under-21s at the time, he was coming back from an injury and would be playing for us.
“There’s been a lot of people that have been able to help me.
“When I was breaking through, Arteta was still there, and he was always helping – not just me, but any youngster – he made life easier when I was pushing through.”
