In the course of the match, an own goal was scored at both ends of the pitch, one by Marco Verratti of PSG and another by Alex Iwobi of Arsenal. This gave birth to heated comments by Arsenal fans on the Nigerian international. This comments makes it seem as if to mistakenly convert a goal in one's own net is the biggest crime a footballer can commit. They've forgotten that Arsenal's loss of form and inability to win that match should be traced down to all the players including the technical crew. Do not forget, it was this same fans that gave Iwobi the greatest hype of his career at the beginning of the season to the point of assuming he could become the next Christiano Ronaldo with time. Is this tide turning so soon? Is Iwobi losing fans favour already? Below are some tweets and comments made by Arsenal fans, my point of view follows thereafter;
Criticism, comments and backlashes abound among football fans of a club battling to regain its form. Unfortunately,such criticism ends up on one player or principally on the coach. Such has been the case now with Arsenal's youngster Alex Iwobi with some emotional Arsenal fans, judging by the nature of comments and words slashed on the 20 year old footballer. This criticism intensified after the UEFA Champions League 2-2 draw against PSG at Emirates makng Arsenal's hope of finishing top of the group extremely slim.
