Many Everton fans have been left venting at Alex Iwobi after his uncle Jay-Jay Okocha spoke to Goal about his move from Arsenal to the Goodison Park faithful.
Speaking to the news outlet, the footballing legend said: “The move from Arsenal to Everton wasn’t an easy one. He wasn’t expecting it, it just happened. He got a call that there’s a deal for him and that he must oblige that deal. I think that must have taken him 12 months to get over.”
Should Everton cut their losses on Iwobi?
A lot was expected of Iwobi at the Merseyside club given that he cost £27.36m to sign him from the Gunners, but he has never really been able to live up to his inflated price tag.
The 24-year-old has only managed to score a mere two goals and make a further two assists in 50 games in total in the Premier League for the Toffees over the last two consecutive terms (Transfermarkt), which is simply not a good enough return for an attacking player.
Currently earning £50,000 per week at the Blues, the winger has been a total waste of money so far despite the occasional good performance.
Everton fan reaction to Okocha comments on Iwobi
These EFC supporters slammed the winger on Twitter after reading the comments:
“Not as struggling as us fabs who have to watch him trying to play football week in week out hopefully we get rid soon as”
“Just get rid now he doesn’t want to be here”
“Poor move for everyone except Arsenal.”
“If he’s lucky, he might follow in his footsteps and be at Bolton next season”
“He can go back if he wants”
“Funnily enough I’m still not over it 3 years on”
