Iwobi hails Ozil, Sanchez

22 March 2016, 19:41

Abuja - Arsenal winger Alex Iwobi has appreciated the contribution of teammates Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez to his good form at the London club.

The Nigeria international made his Gunners' debut in October, and scored his first goal for the team in his first EPL start on Saturday in the 2-0 win over Everton at Goodison Park.

"With going out on loan, it's men's football so you have to win all the time [and develop] that 'anything to win' kind of mentality, so you learn things quicker on loan," Iwobi told the Arsenal Weekly podcast.

"But when you're playing with world-class players and training with them every day you become a better footballer in my opinion,” he said on Independent.

"You learn a lot more training with the likes of [Mesut] Ozil and [Alexis] Sanchez."

The 19 year-old is set to feature for the Super Eagles on Friday in a 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Egypt.
