Jamie Carragher says this Arsenal player was ‘poor’, he’s being ‘wasted’
Jamie Carragher has singled out one of Arsenal’s below-par performers in the Champions League clash against Bayern Munich.
Arsene Wenger was back in the dug-out on Wednesday after his recent ban but he hardly saw anything from his team to be proud of as they surrendered to a 5-1 defeat.
Several fans and pundits have leveled all sorts of criticism at Arsenal players after a result which means the Gunners’ Champions League hopes are over for this season.
One of the players who had a day to forget was Alex Iwobi and according to Jamie Carragher, the Nigerian youngster is not being played in the right position by his manager.
“He [Iwobi] was poor, he looked lost as a winger, tonight he was badly exposed but I honestly think he is wasting away as a winger. He has the calmness and strength that Ozil lacks in the midfield” Carragher was quoted as saying.
“Ozil has failed to convince in the middle, but Wenger still prefers him to Iwobi who has impressed in badges when played through the middle”
