The Nigeria international, currently the highest-paid Super Eagles player, recently opened up about his personal life and how his father taught him to manage his finances.

Speaking on the Hoil Boys podcast, Iwobi said:

“When I was sixteen, I went out with my friends to get food, and it cost about fourty pounds. I offered to pay and the card got declined, as it turned out I had run my account empty. As soon as I got my first professional contract, my dad told me to invest, and it has helped me a lot. I thank God for my Dad,”
