Former Nigeria coach, Sunday Oliseh, has predicted that Arsenal youngster Alex Iwobi is a potential African Player of the Year.
Oliseh made the prediction during Arsenal's Premier League match against Burnley on Sunday in which Iwobi featured before going off for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Iwobi, 20, has been outstanding for Arsenal since the commencement of this season, providing two assists so far.
He was also named Man-of-the-Match in Arsenal's 3-0 win against Chelsea the previous weekend.
Former Super Eagles captain Oliseh wrote on his Twitter handle: "After the Tottenham vs Man City thriller, watching Burnley vs Arsenal. Glad to watch talented Alex Iwobi play. Potential African best player!"
Iwobi is in the Nigeria squad for the Russia 2018 World Cup qualifier against Zambia on 9 October.Unblock the FIFA World Cup with ExpressVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
