Arsenal To Fine Alex Iwobi Over ‘Unacceptable’ Partying Before Cup Loss

Arsène Wenger has said he will fine Alex Iwobi if the Arsenal midfielder is confirmed to have been partying in the early hours of Saturday morning, just a day and a half before their 4-2 FA Cup defeat by Nottingham Forest.

A video purports to have shown Iwobi dancing at 2.37am during a party in Soho. It is against Arsenal’s policy to allow nights out so close to a match and, should the images be verified, Wenger will be angered further by the fact that Iwobi was among many players to disappoint in a performance he strongly criticised.

“If that is true, he will be fined,” Wenger said. “It is impossible to go out 48 hours before a game. It’s unacceptable. I will have to see him to see if that is right or not.
