Arsenal youngster, Alex Iwobi, got the harsh sarcastic side of his Super Eagles’ teammates after he came down with food poisoning and missed Tuesday morning’s training.
While the other players wished him a speedy recovery, the older and ‘meaner’ players did not fail to point out that he was the architect of his own problems by choosing to consume pepper soup in camp, knowing he has a ‘soft stomach’. This new speculation follows yesterday’s suspicion that the food poisoning was caused by a salad the teenage player ate.
Chelsea’s John Obi Mikel is said to have reportedly threw a bottle of water in a playful banter at the Arsenal man during a break in training on Tuesday evening.
Meanwhile, Iwobi has tweeted that he is fine and ready for the AFCON qualifier against Egypt.
