Marvelous Alex Iwobi is one of Nigeria’s best players of our time. He deserves all the attentions he attracts from Everton supporters Club Fans in US.
Yes, from being vilified to being vaunted, Alex Iwobi has dribbled his way back into the hearts of Everton fans all around the globe.
They will be forever grateful for the part he played is helping them retain their dwindling Premier League status with vigorous performances in the tail end of the season.
He now needs to build up on this with consistency in quality outputs next season.
I am glad to see that he is finally living up to his sign on fee.
The way Alex Iwobi changed his fate at Everton in less than 3 months…from the most ‘hated’ Everton player to now being one of their most celebrated player after the relegation escape is quite remarkable. This is a lesson to all struggling Nigerian players in their European clubs, just work on yourself,get fitter like Iwobi did and stop worrying about social media posts…
Yes Iwobi is the best Nigeria player in Europe this season, he deserves the African footballer of the year Award.he single-handedly saved Everton.
