Nigeria management happy Alex Iwobi with Everton

Nigeria national team assistant coach Imama Amapakabo is backing Alex Iwobi for success with Everton.

The midfielder moved from Arsenal to Everton on transfer deadline.

“I think he has been able to prove himself that he's a good player, he didn't just sell himself to Everton, they came for him knowing the reason why they came for him and the role he's going to play for them," Amapakabo told Football Live Nigeria.

“The league just started in England, let's give him some time we will be able to have a discussion with anyone that will doubt Iwobi's capabilities.

“He is a young lad, and he has his football ahead of him so, let us give him all the backing that we need to give him, hopefully at the end of the season we would be able to take stock of how well he has fared with Everton."
