Gunners star Iwobi opens up and announces life-long Arsenal dream
Winger Alex Iwobi is hoping to fulfil a dream by helping Arsenal to win trophies in the coming seasons.
Despite the fact that Arsenal had a poor domestic Cup run and failed to make it into the top four, meaning they currently will not be playing Champions League football next season, Gunners boss Unai Emery has masterminded a run to the Europa League final.
Emery will see his Arsenal side face off against Chelsea at the end of the month for the chance to become European Champions, and ending a long wait for the club to taste some European success, having failed to achieve that under Arsene Wenger.
Iwobi, who has been with Arsenal since 2004, is relishing the chance to play in Arsenal’s first European final since the Gunners lost to Barcelona in the Champions League in 2006 and is hoping that a win against Chelsea will start a run of silverware for the Arsenal.
When asked about his excitement ahead of the final on May 29, Iwobi said: “To be here and have an opportunity to play in such a big final is great.
“I’ve had many dreams of winning things for Arsenal at a young age. I never thought I’d make it this far.
“Every trophy to us is special, we always want to do our best and win as many as we can, and the Europa League final is another one we can win.”
Arsenal will head into the final against Chelsea as firm favourites, especially as boss Emery has already won this competition three times and knows just what it takes to take the trophy home.
Chelsea will be tough opponents as they have some real superstars in their squad, but if the Gunners can win the Europa League and then acquire the right kind of players over the course of the next few months, Iwobi could get his dream.
Emery has been successful at every club he has managed so far, and it is safe to say that Arsenal have a manager that will bring success back to the club.
