The 20-year-old Nigerian international has quickly become a star player under Arsene Wenger since making his debut last season and played 70 minutes of Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Basel last month but found himself being followed home from the Emirates by an over-obsessed stalker.
Speaking on Arsenal’s official club podcast, Alex Iwobi said:
“Especially after a game, I’m trying to go home and I see fans almost breaking my car just to grab a picture,” Iwobi said. “It’s just crazy. There’s been a lot of crazy things. The last home game we played, I was driving for 15 minutes and there was one fan following me and I was getting a bit scared because I was close to my destination.
“I was thinking: ‘Ah, I’m going to have to make a detour just to get to the destination before he finds out where I’m going. That was a bit mad.”
