Alex Iwobi has praised teammate Mesut Ozil for his impactful display in their 3-0 victory over Bate Borisov in Thursday’s Europa League game.
The German midfielder who has been sparingly used by Unai Emery lately made his first start since January 29 and impressed.
The 30-year-old was involved in the goals scored in the encounter to help his side seal a 3-1 aggregate win at the Emirates Stadium.
“We know what Mesut is like because we see him in training every day,” Iwobi said after game.
“He’s world class. We scored three goals as a result of him playing. I know if I make a run he has the vision to find me. Hopefully he can keep on playing.”
On his part, Iwobi who made his 34th appearance this season in the tie delivered a decent showing having been subjected to criticism recently for his mixed performances.
He along with Ozil will hope to help the Gunners to another win when they take on Southampton on Sunday.
