Football fans believe Iwobi’s act was disrespectful to a fellow professional player.
Iwobi got into an altercation after coming on in the 70th minute of Arsenal’s 3-0 Thursday night win over Rennes in a Europa League round of 16 game.
The altercation started when Traore shoved Iwobi causing the Arsenal player to kick back in retaliation.
As the two players went back and forth with each other, Iwobi held his nose as he walked away from the player-an act to imply that Traore had a smelly breath.
Iwobi’s act has caused massive debate on Twitter as many criticised the Arsenal star for disrespect.
#Nigeria’s Alex Iwobi was rude, disrespectful, unprofessional and filthy. Forget the banter & silly excuses you want to suggest.
Race and colour irrelevant…embarrassingly unacceptable.#Mali’s Hamari Traore is one of the coolest, respectful responsible players in Ligue 1.✊🏿
