Some Everton fans have been left raging at some comments made by Alex Iwobi on his official Instagram story after the 1-1 away draw at Burnley in the Premier League.
After the game, the Nigeria international posted on his story (via The Toffee Blues), that ‘a point’s better than nothing’, which left several members of the Goodison Park faithful questioning his mentality.
Should Everton cut their losses on Iwobi?
Given that Sean Dyche’s team are currently in the relegation zone in the top flight at the moment, the Merseyside club should be looking to get all three points against them, even if they were playing at Turf Moor.
If Carlo Ancelotti’s side have any ambitions of finishing in the European spots come the end of the 2020/21 term, then these are matches that they need to be winning.
Everton fan reaction to Iwobi post
These EFC supporters raged upon learning about Iwobi’s post on Twitter, with one Blue even claiming that the 24-year-old winger has a ‘pathetic mentality’ after reading his message.
I like Iwobi but that’s a Pathetic mentality

Should be benched next game for that comment alone.

This is the problem. A point against this type of opponent should be disappointing!

Still can’t get over this. Epitomises everything that’s wrong at the club. https://t.co/VVgAokKEja

Absolutely disgraceful comment that. Didnt watch the game today due to work so I can’t comment on who played well or not but what I can tell you with absolute certainty is that any player happy to take a point against a team 19th in the league should not be playing for the club https://t.co/SgFZgwFHpH

The quicker Carlo gets rid of him and the other deadwood the better.
