(Image) It seems Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi has bagged a role in a new Nigerian film

Arsenal did not quite have the dream start to the season going down 2-0 to Manchester City at home. But that need not necessarily mean that their players are not going places.

Nigerian midfielder, Alex Iwobi, who remained on the bench during the Gunners’ loss on Sunday, has appeared on the poster of upcoming Nollywood movie, Inpadisu, holding a sword and in what looks like combat attire.

Though not much has been revealed about the movie yet, Iwobi does seem to be playing a major character. Sources confirm that the filming was rounded up weeks ago and that the movie, which is to hit theatres shortly, won’t be standing in the way of the youngster’s sporting endeavours.

The 22-year-old has recently signed a five-year deal with Arsenal that will keep him around till 2023.
