Many Everton fans have been lauding Alex Iwobi as he gave his thoughts to the official website of the Goodison Park faithful about him playing in a wing-back role versus Fulham in the Premier League.
Speaking to the website, the Nigeria international said: “Anywhere he wants me to play, I will be able to do that job.
“And wherever I am playing I will give 100 per cent for the Club.”
Indeed, Iwobi put in a quite impressive display against Scott Parker’s team, winning nine of his duels as well as recording six successful dribbles, two clearances, two interceptions, two tackles and an 88% pass accuracy throughout the game (Sofascore).
Should Everton cut their losses on Iwobi?
The 24 year-old may well have found a new position for himself if he keeps putting in good performances like these for the Merseyside club, and it will be interesting now to see if Carlo Ancelotti picks him in that role for their next match.
Everton fan reaction to Iwobi comments
These EFC supporters lauded Iwobi upon reading his comments on Twitter, with one Toffee even claiming that the winger was a ‘class’ act in the weekend’s clash:
