Alex iwobi has been rated as the most skilful player at Goodison Park by some of his Everton teammates.
The Nigerian has been on an incredible transformation at Everton in recent weeks. From someone who drew numerous critics before he’d even taken to a pitch in a match, now he’s one of the most important members of Frank Lampard’s squad.
Everton players were asked in the latest club programme who the most skilful player in the squad is, and one answer stuck out more than most.
Anthony Gordon remarked: “Alex Iwobi. He’s very sharp and his combination play is very good. He does some crazy skills too!”
Meanwhile Seamus Coleman admitted: “In training, he’s full of stepovers and Cruyff turns. He’s very difficult to get the ball off.”
Ben Godfrey simply put: “Alex Iwobi. It’s like street football!”
Mason Holgate said similar, commenting: “He’s got mad feet!”
For context, the Nigeria international himself was also asked for his opinion and he selected Demarai Gray – as did Asmir Begovic and Andros Townsend. The winger himself, meanwhile, returned the favour to Iwobi.
