‘He’s Arsenal blood’ – Gunners hero Kanu blasts Emery for sanctioning sale of Iwobi to Everton
Arsenal icon Nwankwo Kanu has criticized former Gunners manager Unai Emery for sanctioning the sale of Alex Iwobi to Everton in the summer of 2019.
In a deal worth 80m euros, Arsenal signed Ivory Coast winger Nicolas Pepe from Lille, leaving them with an obligation to balance their books, hence the sale of the Nigeria international for a fee in the region of 30m pounds.
Iwobi spent fifteen years at Arsenal, rising through the ranks before making his professional debut in a League Cup match against Sheffield Wednesday in October 2015.
“I was surprised they let Alex Iwobi go when they did,” Kanu, speaking to Ladbrokes at its launch of the 5-A-Side Bet on Arsenal v Everton, said, according to Metro UK.
“He was supposed to be a part of this team and I think they’d be a better team with him in it. He’s Arsenal blood and he’s always given his all for the team.
“He plays at an international level. I believe he’d be much more comfortable in this Arsenal team than he is in the Everton team.”
During his time at the Emirates Stadium, Iwobi won two Community Shields and the FA Cup, and was on
target in the Europa League final in his final season with the club.
