Nigerian forward , Alex Iwobi says he has learnt that consistency is the key to getting a spot on the Arsenal team.
Iwobi broke into the first team from the Arsenal academy in 2015, but has struggled to get a spot in the starting XI this season.
The Nigeria international has revealed he missed out on his sport in the squad, due to a performance drop.
“It was hard but something I had to learn from. If you are not performing consistently at a club like Arsenal, then there are other players ready to take the opportunity — which I learned the tough way,” Iwobi told Evening Standard.
“I wasn’t involved as much as I wanted to be but I just had to be patient, still have the same attitude, work hard in training and wait for my chance again. That’s what I’ve been doing.
“Obviously, I am an attacking player, so when you are an attacking player, you need to create goals and get goals — and that’s the main thing for me.
“People in my position were doing better than me in that aspect of the game, which is to eventually win games, and that’s something I had to work on.
“I never played it [three at the back] as a youngster growing up. I have played several positions in it — left wing-back, left off the forward, central midfield. Whatever role I get told to play, I just have to adapt to it and play. I don’t really blame the system, I more blame myself.”
