"It was hard especially because at school as well everyone was talking about it", summed up Iwobi, who has been on top of his game as Arsenal maintain their unbeaten run after 21-game.
Arsenal head coach Unai Emery revealed on Thursday that Ozil had stepped up his comeback - and refused to rule the 30-year-old out of contention for Saturday's game with Huddersfield Town. He is very fast in his mind and his feet. Our balance is positive but we can improve that and every day we are working tactically. "And he is hungry".
Arsenal started with a back three in that game, using right-back Stephan Lichsteiner as the third centre-back.
So far Emery has coped fairly without his talisman. "But for me, the club and inside, we can speak about that, and then [there are] no distractions".
Whether or not Ozil is sold in the coming winter transfer window or next summer I think the likelihood is that Arsenal will be marching on into the future without our German number 11.

Donald Trump, top Democrats in astonishing Oval Office spat
If the government partially shuts down on 21 December, up to 600,000 government workers could be affected over the holiday season. At one point, Schumer shot at Trump: "When the president brags that he won North Dakota and IN , he's IN real trouble".
As such, Emery has heaped praise on his player, believing he is showing hunger and desire on the pitch. Indeed, he mostly addressed the issue by focusing on the robustness of Huddersfield's approach. "I got the feeling that the CEO of the International Rescue Committee quite enjoyed pointing out to a former Spurs player that he was actually an Arsenal supporter". But Huddersfield stopped that rhythm a lot. Age doesn't matter. He's unbelievable'. But we are very competitive and showed character'. I wanted us to win more quickly but we needed to be patient.
Referee Paul Tierney dished out six yellow cards in the half, and nine in the whole match. I don't know how we are going to play in midweek but I do know that I have enough players to cope. "They will have a few days off now and come back on Tuesday".

Wagner refused to be downhearted, however. We are conceding more goals than we want.
We would still get a transfer fee of somewhere between £25/35m for him and his £350,000 wages and that could be put to better use elsewhere.
