Alex Iwobi Faces Fine Over Pre-Match Party Claims

Alex Iwobi will be fined, if it is confirmed he attended a party less than 48 hours before playing in Arsenal’s FA Cup exit, says Arsene Wenger.

A video footage showing the 21-year-old at a party in the early hours of Saturday morning was released on social media. Arsenal manager Wenger said is it “impossible” and “unacceptable” to go out within 48 hours of a game.

But Wenger said Iwobi was not involved in either taking drugs or drinking alcohol.

“First of all we have to be cautious with everything that is coming out,” added Wenger.

“When you read what is reported it is like he has taken drugs. He was not involved in that at all. He has been out at a birthday party and how long he has stayed? That is important. After, I will decide what happens.”

Iwobi came under heavy criticism after they were beaten 4-2 by Nottingham Forest last weekend. The Arsenal Manager believes his side’s results have suffered due to injuries, with those unavailable to face Forest still yet to recover from injury as yet.

“We paid the price of having many injured layers, some needed to be rested,” He said.

“Five or six were injured, which is detrimental to rotation.
