Nigerian and Arsenal footballer Alex Iwobi has been bashed by some football fans and pundits for his actions toward fellow African footballer, Hamari Traore during Thursday night’s UEFA Europa League game between Arsenal Football Club and Stade Rennais Football Club in London.
During the match, Iwobi covered his nose while talking to Traore on the pitch. According to many, Iwobi was mocking Traore for having a smelly breath.
One person has really bashed Alex Iwobi for his rude act is Nigerian sports writer, Oluwashina Okeleji.
In a tweet, Oluwashina described Iwobi act as rude, disrespectful, unprofessional and filthy.
#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.✊🏿
