Everton’s boss Marco Silva has called on Nigerian midfielder Alex Iwobi to continue dishing out high quality creativity and goals at his new club side.
Silva who made this call during an interview session with Everton TV explained that Iwobi will help the Everton side with high quality attack.
The deadline day signing has scored in each of his first two starts for the Blues, finding the back of the net with accomplished headers in Everton’s 4-2 Carabao Cup victory at Lincoln City and 3-2 Premier League success against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Iwobi’s speed, penetration and intelligent use of the ball has seen him seamlessly slot into manager Silva’s progressive Everton team.
Having already showcased his goal scoring instinct, Silva has backed Iwobi to continue providing decisive contributions in the final third of the pitch.
“It is something I will demand from him more and more,” the manager told evertontv.
“With the quality he has – I am 100 per cent sure he will give important things for us.
“He will give high quality in our attack. He can provide creativity playing from the left or behind the striker as an offensive midfielder.
“And if he can – and I am sure he can – score more goals, it will help the team.
“The first time I met with him, it was something I put in his mind [his ability to score goals].”
