Nigeria winger Alex Iwobi has heaped plaudits on Arsenal teammate Mesut Ozil for his impressive display in the Gunners’ 3-0 victory over Bate Borisov in Thursday’s Europa League game at the Emirates Stadium, reports Completesports.com.
Zakhar Volkov conceded an own goal in the fourth minute, while Shkodran Mustafi and Sokratis Papastathopoulos got the other goals for Arsenal in the game.
Ozil who was a key figure under previous manager Arsene Wenger has fell out of favour this season with current boss Unai Emery
not too keen with the German midfielder style of play.
He started his first game since January 29 against the Belarusian club and was involved in the three goals scored in the
encounter to help his side seal a 3-1 aggregate win in the round of 32 encounter.
Iwobi who played the entire 90 minutes of the game hailed the performance of the former Real Madrid star while hoping he gets more opportunity to showcase his talent.
“We know what Mesut is like because we see him in training every
day,” Iwobi told reporters after the game.
“He’s world class. We scored three goals as a result of him playing. I know if I make a run he has the vision to find me. Hopefully he can keep on playing.”
Arsenal will next face Southampton in a Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
