Nigeria international Alex Iwobi’s struggles at Everton FC this season have been a result of the team’s fault and mistakes.
This is according to the English Premier League club’s manager Carlo Ancelotti with the attacker having struggled for consistency thus far this season.
Iwobi has netted one goal and registered two assists in 28 appearances in the Premier League thus far in the current campaign.
“I think he had some good performances, and he had some difficult performances,” Ancelotti told Liverpool Echo.
“he is part of the squad and after that, he had some games where he played really well and was really helpful for the team, and in other games.
“I tried to change a little bit the strategy…it didn’t work well but not for his fault, [it was] the team’s fault and the team’s mistakes.”
“He is professional, but of course when there is competition sometimes you play and sometimes you are on the bench,” he added.
“He is not a frustrating player because he is really professional, really serious, always ready, not at all is he a frustrating player, because he is a really good professional with a fantastic attitude.”
Iwobi was recalled to the starting line-up as he replacement for James Rodriguez as Everton succumbed to a 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa on Saturday.
