EXTRA TIME: Watch Arsenal's Iwobi speak Pidgin fluently logo 25-03-2017

Alex Iwobi surprised Ogenyi Onazi and his fellow teammates after greeting the Trabzonspor midfielder in Pidgin English.

Iwobi greeted the former Lazio man, fluently, in Pidgin after the Super Eagles training on Friday evening stating to him how his presence was felt in the day's session.

Onazi was excused from the training because of the injury he sustained after colliding with Senegal's Mame Diouf in Thursday's friendly encounter.
