Super Eagles assistant Coach Joseph Yobo has denied reports credited to him that Alex Iwobi is not good enough for team’s number 10 role.
Reports on Monday morning claimed the former Super Eagles captain suggested in an Instagram live interview session over the weekend that Super Eagles needs a new creative midfielder.
The reports also added that Yobo stated that Iwobi is not a consistent performer for the Super Eagles which means the team must continue their search for players who fit into the role perfectly.
However, the Everton legend has now debunked the stories and explained that he only suggested that Nigeria has struggled to replace Austin Okocha and Wilson Oruma since their retirement.

He stressed further that Iwobi is a player that he likes and he’s unpredictable as well.
The 2013 African cup of Nations winner added that the reporter twisted his word, and what he wrote was far from the truth.
“I don’t know where he (the writer) got it all crossed out, he changed my words, I didn’t use the word inconsistent for Iwobi, the anchor mentioned that. I said he’s unpredictable and I like him, and his game his hard for midfielders and defenders to understand what he’s going to do,” Yobo said.
Yobo was appointed as an assistant to Gernot Rohr a few months ago, he replaced Imama Amakapabo who departed after the expiration of his contract with the Nigeria Football Federation.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
