Alex Iwobi In Trouble Despite Arsenal Quarter-Final Qualification

iwobi tells traore he stinks

Amid jubilation from the Arsenal camp over qualification to the quarter-final of the Europa League, massive criticism has engulfed one of their players.

The Gunners were able to overturn a 3-1 deficit suffered in the first leg of the last-16 and while fans are impressed by the energy put in by the squad, Alex Iwobi has been heavily slammed for an extremely rude gesture.

The Nigerian international in the closing period of the match had a misunderstanding with Rennes' Hamari Traore.

The right-back then tried to speak to Iwobi who quickly put his hand to his nose to indicate that the former stinks.

This act has caused division among fans and other football lovers. While some see it as disrespectful, others feel there is nothing wrong.

Below are some of the reactions from Twitter:


Arsenal will face Napoli in the quarter-final of the Europa League as per the draw held in Nyon, Switzerland, on Friday.

The double-legged encounter will hold on April 11 and 18th respectively. The first game will be played at the Emirates Stadium.
