Iwobi Faces Punishment over Pre-match Party
Arsenal FC Manager, Arsene Wenger, has said that Alex Iwobi will be fined if it is confirmed that he was at a party 36 hours before Sunday’s FA Cup loss at Nottingham Forest.
The footage, which was uploaded to Snapchat, appears to show the Nigerian dancing at a party in a house in central London at 02:37 GMT, and was published in UK’s The Sun newspaper.
According to The Sun the Arsenal midfield star was videoed screaming and dancing at 2.37am on Saturday in Soho, central London, hours before featuring for the Gunners in their 4-2 FA Cup loss to Nottingham Forest at Ashton Gate.
Iwobi was filmed dancing at the wild bash where partygoers smoked cannabis and inhaled laughing gas but there was no suggestion that the Super Eagles star took drugs during the house party, according to the report.
The report added that the neighbours complained about the noise from the rented flat in Soho, central London, where the party continued until 3.30am.
