Everton Manager To Deploy Iwobi As Left Winger

Everton Iwobi Left Winger

Everton manager Marco Silva says he plans to play new signing Alex Iwobi as a left-winger or a second striker.

The boss said he wants the Super Eagles forward to score more goals.

“The position we’re looking for him to come from the left and also play behind the striker, which he does really well,” Silva said.

“He has good intensity, which is good for my attacking players.”

Iwobi, 23, joined Everton for 38 million pounds from boyhood club Arsenal on transfer deadline day in England Thursday.

Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha’s nephew has often said his preferred position is in central midfield and it is a role he has enjoyed with the Super Eagles lately.

“My demand for him is to score more goals because that’s important in his position,” said the Everton manager today.

“He’s a good, fast player, who can help us.”
