Everton winger, Alex Iwobi is having a double celebration as he celebrates the new year which also coincides with his parents’ 25 years marriage anniversary.
The former Arsenal academy graduate took to his Instgram page to celebrate with a picture involving his dad, mum, and sister.
Despite his rocky move to Everton from Arsenal, his season had been a ding dong affair as Everton struggled for form and they couldn’t get results after spending a lot of money during the transfer.
Despite this, the Nigerian midfielder still has cause to celebrate with former AC Milan manager, Carlo Ancellotti who made a winning start for the Toffees, after the sack of Marco Silva.
Before his move away from Arsenal, Iwobi had been blamed for Arsenal’s failure especially in the final third.
However, the North London team is doing worse after the exit of Jay-Jay Okocha’s cousin. Arsenal is looking for a win from over ten games since the 1-0 win over Bournemouth at the Emirate Stadium.
Starting his career at Arsenal academy at the age of 8, the contribution of his parent to his career success is in no small measure as he commands regular starting spot for the Super Eagles of Nigeria and continues to give out good performance when called upon.
Alexander Chuka Iwobi has carved a niche for himself in the English topflight after being given the opportunity by former Arsenal coach, Arsene Wenger.
The 23-year-old born in Lagos before moving to England at the age of four. After a brief stay in Turkey, Iwobi grew up in Newham, London. His mother is the sister to former Nigerian midfielder, Jay-Jay Okocha, who was rumoured to be the one behind his decision to play for Nigeria, having been eligible to play for England.
