Super Eagles Forward and Arsenal FC Striker, Alex Iwobi has been slammed after a video of him at an alleged drug-fuelled party hours before Arsenal’s shock FA Cup defeat emerged online.
A clip showed the 21-year-old dancing and screaming with a large group of revellers at about 2.37am on Saturday in a Soho flat.
The Snapchat video was captioned: “Shouldn’t Iwobi be sleeping?”
Nigerian international Iwobi started for the Gunners as they crashed out of the tournament following a 4-2 defeat to Championship outfit Nottingham Forest on Sunday.
A source told The Sun Online that the revellers had been refused entry at a club ahead of the third-round tie and rented an AirBnB.
Their partying kept residents up for hours and prompted one to complain.
The source said: “They were keeping everyone in the building awake.
“I was woken at 1am by chanting and singing and went to complain. There were laughing gas canisters all over the place and a strong smell of weed.
“They claimed they hadn’t been allowed into a club and that’s why they rented the flat.”
There was no suggestion Iwobi had used any substance at the party.
Fans panned Iwobi’s performance and have since blasted his attitude off the pitch after the video emerged online.
Jack Simmons said: “Disappointed with you mate, manager and fans put faith in you and this is what you give them in return? Time to step up.”
An Arsenal spokesman declined to provide a comment.
