Alex Iwobi racially abused after Arsenal’s loss to Everton

Arsenal ace Alex Iwobi has posted an image of racist abuse he suffered following the 2-1 defeat to Everton yesterday.

The 20-year-old Nigerian has impressed for the club since making his Premier League debut earlier in the year.

But after going 2-1 down to Everton at Goodison Park, Arsenal pushed forward in search of a late equaliser.

And following a scramble in the box, Iwobi’s goal bound effort was incredibly blocked on the line by Leighton Baines and cleared to safety.

After the match, Iwobi posted screenshots of reaction from supporters on Snapchat.

In one picture, Iwobi is told to “go back to Nigeria” on Twitter.

However Iwobi also posted an image of a supportive message he received which said: “People learn from their mistakes and he will only get better.”

To which he replied: “People like this I respect, I tried but was unfortunate I apologise.”
