Alex Iwobi acknowledges he must improve his goal and assist tally for Arsenal.
The Nigeria has seen an improvement in attack this season, having been directly involved in ten goals.
But that still hasn’t stopped criticism for his performances and Iwobi knows he must improve.
“I’d like to say I’ve been involved in a few goals this season, even it’s not the assist or the goal, I’ve been getting a few pre-assists which go unnoticed. But at the end of the day as long as the team does well, that’s my main concern,” Iwobi told club website.
“I would say each day I’m still growing and still learning, but negatives, obviously they’re always going to criticise me for my goals and assists, which I need to add to my game if I want to be compared with the people I’m playing with.
“The main thing is just to remain calm. We’ve even been doing some mental work to remain calm under pressure and calm when I’m on the pitch, and this is something I’ve been working on, not just in football but also off the pitch as well.
“Now I’ve done it I look back and it wasn’t easy, especially with the things I had to go through, so I can always say it’s going to be hard, but the rewards are definitely worth it.
“All I know is that playing for Arsenal to me is always going to be an honour. I’m always proud to represent this club and wear the badge.”
