Everton winger Alex Iwobi has revealed that he has no regrets leaving Arsenal for Carlo Ancelotti’s team.
Iwobi said this ahead of Everton’s FA Cup fifth round clash with Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday night at Goodison Park.
The Nigerian international left his childhood club, Arsenal after 15 years at the Emirates to join Everton in 2019 in a deal worth around £40 million.
The 24-year-old made 149 appearances for the Gunners and scoring 15 goals, and winning the FA Cup in 2017.
Iwobi told Sky Sports: “It’s hard to get past that at Arsenal. A coach, obviously, Unai Emery came, and yes, it was a little different because there were many different methods, things were changing, the positions, the formations, and I had to play in numerous positions.
“So maybe I was a little uneasy, but I don’t really want to say anything like an argument or a problem because at the end of the day, as footballers, we should be able to deal with the situation.
“Maybe I should have handled it better, but if what happened in the past has made me who I am today, I have no regrets.”
