Former Super Eagles goalkeeper Ike Shorunmu has said that Midfielder Alex Iwobi would have spent much of next season on Arsenal bench had he decided to stay on at the Emirates stadium.
This was as he insisted that the Super Eagles playmaker made the right move switching from Arsenal to Everton.
Iwobi departed Arsenal to Everton in a five-year-deal on the transfer deadline day.
The move has continued to generate debate among football lovers in the country.
“I’m not surprised at all. Instead, I would say it is nice decision. No player wants to sit on the bench. Every player wants to be involved game in, game out,” Shorumu told Soccernet.
“And when you see yourself not playing as regularly as you would want, then you look for where you gonna enjoy regular playing time, which is what Iwobi has just done.
“I salute him for his decision. I salute him for his courage and of course, playing more regularly will help his career and equally benefit the Super Eagles.”
