Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger predicted Iwobi would become a ‘top-class’ player during his early years at the club , but Iwobi , nephew of Bolton legend Austin Jay Jay Okocha is yet to lived up to hype.
‘I’m no longer that young prospect, that young talent,’ Iwobi was quoted by the Daily Mail.
‘I have to show why there was so much hype about me. The only way you can do that is in games. I feel I’m at that time in my career when I need to start doing that. I need to up my stats a bit more, improve a bit more.
‘That will come. I’m looking forward to restarting the season so I can prove myself.’
Iwobi is expected to be in action when Everton take on Liverpool on Sunday (today) in a Premier League game at the Goodison Park.
