EPL: Arsenal legend criticizes Fulham manager for early substitution of Iwobi in loss to Forest



Marco Silva, the Fulham manager, received criticism from Arsenal icon Martin Keown for his decision to substitute Alex Iwobi early during their 3-1 defeat against Nottingham Forest on Tuesday.

The match saw Fulham conceding three quick goals.

Iwobi was replaced in the 33rd minute of the game, alongside Harry Wilson and Sasa Lukic.

Expressing his discontent, Keown remarked to TNT Sports, “It is a public embarrassment. As if it wasn’t embarrassing enough to be substituted after the half-hour mark, you then have to sit there and reflect on your performance.”

Interestingly, Iwobi’s teammate Calvin Bassey played the full duration of the match.
