'Unacceptable' Iwobi to be fined

English Premier League

The Gunners were second best at City Ground at the weekend after crashing to a 4-2 loss against the Championship side as Wenger’s men failed in their title defence at the first hurdle.

Soon after the loss, a video emerged of Iwobi at a London party that went on until the early hours of the morning, and Wenger has since revealed the club have taken steps to discipline the Nigerian.

"He [Iwobi] will be fined," said Wenger.

"It was not the night before the game, it was 48 hours before the game. The night before the game we were in a hotel, but it's not acceptable, I will have to speak to him about that.

"First of all you have to be cautious with all the news coming out. When you read what is reported it is like he has taken drugs. I don't think he is involved in that at all.

"He has been out at a party, how long has he stayed? That is of course very important. After that, I will decide what happens.

"If your neighbour takes drugs what can you do about it? You are not responsible for the behaviour of your neighbour."
