Everton midfielder Iwobi: People have Ozil all wrong

Everton midfielder Alex Iwobi has jumped to the defence of former Arsenal teammate Mesut Ozil.

Iwobi insists Ozil is wrongly portrayed in the press.

Discussing the best players he's played with, Iwobi named Santi Cazorla, Glen Kamara and Chuba Akpom in his top five, before adding in an online Q&A: "Four is Ozil, he was crazy.

"Obviously because of his body language people think he's not working hard but he actually works hard, people judge it wrong.

"They are going to find this a bit weird but I'm going to say Francis Coquelin. I have been lucky to play with world class players."
