Arsenal star Alex Iwobi says he got very scared when a fan followed him home after a game.
Iwobi’s popularity has soared in the past one year since he became a regular for Arsenal.
Speaking to Arsenal’s weekly podcast, the winger who has made seven appearances so far this season, recalled the time he was trailed on his way him by a fan.
“I remember the last home game we played. For 15 minutes there was one fan following me and I was getting a bit scared,” the 20-year-old said.
“I was getting close to my destination. I was thinking, I’m going to have to do a detour before I get to my destination before he ends up finding where I’m going.
“That was a bit mad.”
During the international break, Iwobi scored for Nigeria as they beat Zambia 2-1 in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier.
