Alex Iwobi has admitted he will be supporting Liverpool when they lock horns with Tottenham in the Champions League final in Madrid next month.
One of Jurgen Klopp or Mauricio Pochettino will win their maiden trophies with their clubs next Saturday when the two sides lock horns for the biggest prize of them all; Liverpool looking for a sixth European crown and Spurs hoping to win it for the first time in their history.
And Arsenal midfield star Iwobi, whose chances of appearing for the Gunners in next Wednesday’s Europa League final against Chelsea due to Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s decision not to play, admits he’ll be rooting for Klopp’s side.
Iwobi said: “We’re not trying to focus on Tottenham to be fair, I actually hope they lose.
“We’re not trying to look at them, they’ve done well to be fair, you have to give it to them, but we want to focus on ourselves and bring a trophy back.”
Speaking to Sky Sports, Iwobi insists he is determined to savour the Baku showpiece and ensure Unai Emery’s maiden season in charge ends in success.
“To be here and have an opportunity to play in such a big final is great,” he said.
“I’ve had many dreams of winning things for Arsenal at a young age. I never thought I’d make it this far.
“Every trophy to us is special, we always want to do our best and win as many as we can, and the Europa League final is another one we can win.”
