Arsenal of England Captain Laurent Koscielny has challenged Alex Iwobi to fulfil his exceptional potential after an impressive start to life at Arsenal under Unai Emery
Koscielny made his assertion on Iwobi writing in the match day programme notes ahead of Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Everton
The 22 year old Nigerian International has impressed under Emery, scoring in a 3-2 defeat at Chelsea and taking on a leading role in a 4-2 win over Vorskla Poltava in the Europa League on Thursday
However he still struggles a little to maintain the required consistency with Arsenal often becoming the focus of fan rage and unable to cement a regular starting berth with the Gunners.
And Club captain Koscielny though openly impressed with Iwobis display has urged the youngster to repeat it on a regular basis to establish himself in Emery’s plans.
“He has huge potential and he needs to realise how good he could become,” Koscielny told the club’s official matchday programme
“Right now, he is definitely on the right path to do just that. He is working hard at training and his confidence is high since Unai Emery arrived.
“If you look at him he has everything. He is strong physically, quick, good technically and his movement is good. He needs to be more efficient and clinical so he scores and assists more.
“He is very receptive and listen to advice so I have no doubt that he will continue his progression.”
