Alex Iwobi has won plenty of plaudits for his performances on the left of the Arsenal midfield so far this season, but that seemingly isn’t enough for the 20-year-old according to British newspaper Daily Mail.
Iwobi has played six times for the Gunners this season, with his direct running and dribbling ability catching the eye and creating three goals for his club, but now he’s filmed girlfriend Clarisse Juliette reading out how he rates on FIFA 17.
Juliette, wearing a tight gold dress, is sat on the sofa holding up a giant card including her boyfriend’s vital statistics, which he has also signed as he ensures his social media follows know just how good he is.
She describes herself as a ‘South American and European Londoner’ on her own Instagram page, and methodically works her way through the card, stumbling slightly as she tells the watching audience Iwobi’s club, national team and playing stats.
Iwobi later posted the message ‘She Tried , Bless Her’ alongside a still image his girlfriend studying his skills.
For the record, Iwobi is rated as a silver player on the EA Sports game, gaining an overall rank of 70, with his running and dribbling ability his strong points. He’s rated 77 for pace and 76 for dribbling, but could do with working on the defensive side of his game given he’s rated at just 28 in that department.
The Nigerian international clearly has a keen interest in the simulation game, given he took to Instagram to share his excitement after attending the launch event on Tuesday.
He wrote: ‘At The #FIFA17UKLAUNCH & Got My Hands On @EASPORTSFIFA 17 For The 1st Time’.
While EA Sports have rated Iwobi at 70, former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand clearly has a high opinion of the winger.
