Ancelotti: Iwobi Is A Good Player

Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti has labelled Alex Iwobi a good player ahead of his side’s Premier League clash against Leeds United on Saturday (today), reports Completesports.com.

Iwobi was deployed in an unfamiliar right wing-back position in Everton’s 3-2 away win against Fulham last weekend.

The Nigeria international thrived in the new position and earned reviews after the game.

“I was happy about his performance [against Fulham]. He did well,” Ancelotti stated during his interaction with the media on Friday.

“He can cover that position as a full-back.

“Iwobi is a good player but he needs to feel that confidence, as does everyone!

“For Alex it’s important to feel there are people that has confidence in him.”

Ancelotti also hinted he could deploy Iwobi as a left wing-back in subsequent games.

“We are thinking about this. Three centre-backs can be an option still, we have Niels Nkounkou who is young but has a lot of quality,” he added.

” I think Iwobi can play on the left as a wing back, in my opinion. So we will see.”

    What am I hearing? Iwobi as a wingback? Come on, this is a no10 with a second-to-none workrate! They should not do to iwobinho what they did to Mikel!

    • ….even Victor Moses, lol.. even though he thrived in that position @ Chelsea anyways

      Is it not better for a player to master a new position and become world class in that regards rather than being an average player in the usual posotion. Players can sometimes try new positions and will from there become much more relevant, ask Yobo, gorge campus,Jose chilavert and many more. If iwobi will be more relevant and His career will be better off at that new position please let him stick to it.Iwobi’s career first for me before super eagles.
