Many Everton fans have been left to speculate on the future of Alex Iwobi as Carlo Ancelotti commented on his recent controversial Instagram post.
The former Arsenal man posted a subtle dig at the Italian boss on one of his latest stories: “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?
Ancelotti was asked about this post in his pre-game press conference ahead of their home game against Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday evening, to which he said (via The Toffee Blues): “I read the post that he did. I would like to know his preferred position because usually I want to put players on the pitch where they are comfortable to play. If he has an idea of where he prefers to play, I have to know. I want to know.”
The Nigeria international suggested that Ancelotti is not playing him where he wants to play, and several members of the Goodison Park faithful took his response as having a dark undertone to it.
As such, some speculation arose on Twitter over whether this means the end for Iwobi at the Merseyside club under Ancelotti, given the subtle dig and the manager’s reply.
Everton fan reaction to Ancelotti comments
These Toffees supporters speculated on Twitter after reading the comments that were made by Ancelotti:
“Well, Alex? You may have just put the last nail in your own coffin. Well done, sir.”
“Taxi for Iwobi”
“If a manager of Ancelotti’s standing doesn’t know your best position then you’re in trouble…”
“There’s something to this.”
“Time to start packing your baked beans, and head to the bus stop.”
“Well he’s off in the summer then isn’t he”
