Former Super Eagles captain, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha has warned emerging starlet, Alex Iwobi to avoid pride if he is to achieve his full potential.

Iwobi has been impressive in recent weeks for English Premier League club, Arsenal with two goals and two assists in his last four starts.

Okocha says Iwobi can reach for the heavens only if he keeps his feet firmly on the ground.

“My Uncle (Jay Jay) is always offering me advice.

“He says he knows things are working well for me but that I must stay humble and remain the same person I have always been,” Iwobi told Arsenal Player.

Okocha has been vocal on Twitter in his support for the nephew and Iwobi says he was shocked to discover his storied Uncle had an account on the microblogging site.

“I didn’t even know he (Jay Jay) was on Twitter but then my friends brought what he said to my notice and I am like ‘Oh Gosh’.

“I am happy that I am making him proud and hopefully, I will be better than him.

“He has been offering me great support. He was at the (Premier League game) against Watford and the Uefa Champions League game against Barcelona.

“The fact that he comes to watch me play shows that it means a lot to him.

“I am happy with the support he’s showing for me because it means a lot to me.

“(I have contact with him) almost on a weekly basis. He came to my house the other day but I missed him because I was at the (Arsenal training ground).

“We do keep in contact a lot. He does tell me what I need to do and what I need to work on,” he said.

Iwobi has made eight league appearances for Arsenal this season.
