Alex Iwobi has revealed that Everton manager Frank Lampard has helped improve his game and helped him prove his critics wrong.
The Super Eagles midfielder was named the man of the match as Everton beat West Ham United in a Premier League game on Sunday.
And reacting during the post-match interview, Alex Iwobi said it was a great way to go into the international break.
“We have been playing really well. The performances were good, it was just about getting the result and getting the win. It’s a great way to go into the international break.”
Talking about his key pass that played in Neal Maupay to get his first goal in an Everton shirt, Iwobi seemed thrilled.
“I’m glad you remember! Anything I can do to create chances for my teammates, and I trust them to hit the back of the net and Neal was able to do that.”
The former Arsenal trainee then talked about the improvement he has made since Frank Lampard took over at Everton and how the English manager has helped him shut his critics.
“I didn’t get off to a great start [at Everton]. I always have the mindset to prove people wrong. The manager has given me faith to do so, and he allows me to express myself as I do in training, and I have been able to do that in matches to repay the faith.
“Ever since I came through as an [Arsenal] academy player I have always liked to move the ball forward on a half turn. Now I’m taking the full turn and trying to get up the pitch.”
