Lots of Everton fans have been left to slam Alex Iwobi after he posted a subtle dig at Carlo Ancelotti on his latest Instagram story.
The story was shared by The Toffee Blues on their Twitter page, as the Nigeria international wrote: ‘Always an honour to get a call up for my national team, hopefully I get to play in my preferred position’.
Should Everton cut their losses on Iwobi?
This has been taken as a subtle dig at Ancelotti by several members of the Goodison Park faithful, who played the former Arsenal man as a right wing-back in their most recent 2-0 loss away at Chelsea in the Premier League on Monday evening, and has played him there on more than one occasion so far in the 2020/21 term.
Predominantly a winger by trade, Iwobi is clearly not happy with playing a wing-back role, as he is asked to defend more rather than showcasing his attacking talent in full force.
Nonetheless, it is a concern that should not really be put in the public domain and thus should be kept behind closed doors instead.
Everton fan reaction to Iwobi dig
These Merseyside club supporters slammed his dig on Twitter, with one Toffees fan even going as far as to call the 24-year-old a ‘fraud’:
“Hahaha. Maybe if he could kick a ball he might get a chance.”
“He is a bad egg within the club. Least he won’t be starting Saturday now”
“Play where you’re asked to play & if you play well you’ll keep your place & eventually play where you want to play. Iwobi needs to look in the mirror to see the reason he’s not playing regularly or in his preferred role.”
“Not good enough for Everton in any position end of”
“He’s a fraud ngl. Leave my club ASAP”
“He’s deluded…..simply garbage in every position”
