Alex Iwobi is free when he has the ball – Gernot Rohr

Nigeria Coach Gernot Rohr has said that Alex Iwobi is free to express himself in the Super Eagles.

He, however, said this will be allowed as long he plays for the collective good of the team.

“With us all the time he’s very good, already in Poland and he was fantastic tonight [against Serbia],” Rohr told the Evening Standard.

“Perhaps sometimes [he did] a little too much individually, he wanted to make a show. We prefer collective football.

”But when he can eliminate his opponent it’s very good. He’s with us all the time in confidence. He’s free when he has the ball.

“I don’t know what the tactical options of Arsene Wenger are when he’s with Arsenal but with us he’s free offensively and he can show all his qualities.”

The Arsenal player was guilty of some showboating in Nigeria’s 2-0 friendly loss to Serbia in London on Tuesday night.
