The Arsenal forward, Iwobi, once admitted in an interview that he experienced very difficult times in the past and his uncle, former Super Eagles legend Austin Okocha, helped him to find his feet.
Unseen throwback photos of the former professional footballer carrying his baby nephew Alex have emerged on social media.
Alex’s father, Chuba Iwobi, is seen smiling heartily.
Iwobi in an interview with Soccer Laduma reportedly said:
‘’Growing up as a kid, there were times when I thought I was going to get released.’‘’But my mum and dad were always there to help. I have had some difficult times and, without my family and my uncle (Austin Okocha), I wouldn’t be where I am today.
“Considering the difficult path that I have had, my Arsenal career has been amazing. I’m on a good way. However, I’m still young and I have got a long way to go.’’
