Fulham’s midfielder Alex Iwobi, who recently made headlines for his outstanding performance with the club, joined Fulham from Everton on deadline day during the summer transfer window. Despite a mixed start under manager Marco Silva, the 27-year-old has found his form in recent weeks, contributing significantly to Fulham’s success.
In the ongoing Premier League season, Iwobi has made a notable impact, scoring three goals and providing an assist in his last three appearances for the Cottagers. This resurgence has solidified his position as the highest-paid player among the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
Beyond the football field, Iwobi shared insights into his personal life during an interview on the Hoil Boys podcast. He revealed a pivotal moment from his youth when, at the age of sixteen, he experienced a financial setback while attempting to cover a forty-pound expense with friends. Reflecting on this incident, Iwobi emphasized the influence of his father in shaping his financial acumen.
Recalling the valuable advice he received, Iwobi mentioned that upon securing his first professional contract, his father emphasized the importance of investing wisely. This guidance, he acknowledged, has played a crucial role in managing his finances effectively. Grateful for his father’s wisdom, Iwobi expressed his appreciation for the pivotal role his dad played in steering him towards financial stability.
