Kanu Nwankwo

Kanu Nwankwo, Ex Super Eagles captain has said to the public that Arsenal made a huge mistake by selling the 23-year-old player, Alex Iwobi to Everton.

Speaking to Goal.com, he believes the Gunners should have kept Iwobi especially after the last AFCON, who was at the club since he was eight years.

Alex Iwobi left the Emirates Stadium on deadline day, in a deal that could eventually total £40million ($49m). As for Ex Super Eagles Captain Kanu Nwankwo, the Arsenal’s decision to cash in on the 23-year-old Nigerian, was a wrong one.

“I would say they made a mistake, 100 per cent.

“Why they let him go, I don’t know.”

“He’s a boy who, in and out, is Arsenal. He always wanted to do his best for the club. He loves the club, but not only that he can play football.

“What he brings week in, week out, the fans need to appreciate that.

“I think he is still young and those are the type of people you want in the team, people who grew up here, who knows everything about the club and wants to die for the club.

“He was one of them, so for us to lose him and to let him go, was a shock. I couldn’t really believe we did it, but that’s football,” he said.

“It was a surprise to everybody because it happened right at the end of the window,” said Kanu. “If I knew earlier, I could have said to him not to go and that it was better for him to stay.

“I would have said that there was no need for him to go because at Arsenal he will still play. He’s that good and he needs to know that.

“I think Arsenal would have been the best place for him because it’s a big club and you want to play in a big club and in Europe. Those are the games you want to play.”
