The scarcely believable stat that should embarrass Everton star Alex Iwobi

Posted by

When Everton signed Alex Iwobi from Premier League rivals Arsenal, the hope was surely that he would provide the goals and assists to shoot the Toffees into the upper echelons of the table.

Since the move in 2019, the 25-year-old Nigeria international has only showed his class sporadically and in the odd game now and again.

It’s not unfair to suggest that he has been something of a disappointment since swapping north London for Merseyside.

Looking into where he has come up short makes for fascinating reading too.

Rafa Benitez is Alex Iwobi’s fourth manager at Everton

One stat in particular is scarcely believable, and will almost certainly embarrass the player.

That’s because, as the Liverpool ECHO note, he has now played under more managers at Goodison Park than he has scored goals.

In the two years since joining Everton, he has scored twice, but has worked under four different managers; Marco Silva, Duncan Ferguson (interim), Carlo Ancelotti and now Rafa Benitez.

  1. Couldn’t even sell him if we tried, needs to be sent on loan to the championship for the experience. Absolute light weight, lazy and with poor ball control, slow legs with poor vision make him a total flop. He should retire since he has no hope for improving with his stinking attitude. He thinks he’s a star, but in reality he’s total garbage. Shame big Dunc didn’t have him for longer as he would have been brutal with him.

  2. One of the worst signings we have ever made. Its high time we shipped all of these frauds out of the club. Costing us £M’s and very little in return.
