Wright stated on his Youtube channel: ''What has happened to us, to Arsenal fans now?.

"Especially the away fans, the hardcore fans who go away, travelling all other the place, losing patience with a young Londoner, an academy player, trying his very best.

"We need to reset and get behind the boys again, especially people like Alex Iwobi. He needs it more than anybody now. He tries to be progressive when he plays.

"It's embarrassing and I feel sorry for him."

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has kept his faith in Iwobi despite the constant criticism who has started 15 games in the Premier League this season.
