Former Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh said he was proud and excited with Alex Iwobi’s display in Everton’s 0-0 draw against Liverpool in Saturday’s Premier League derby.
Iwobi played the full ninety minutes as Everton got a point against Liverpool at Goodison Park.
However, Oliseh was impressed with his fellow compatriot after the game.
In a tweet via his Twitter handle, the former Nigerian midfielder said Iwobi, a former Arsenal player, has found total belief in his capabilities.
Oliseh wrote on Twitter: “Alex Iwobi’s Performance today especially, & in recent months, has me excited & makes me so proud as a compatriot. Vision, physical, clairvoyance, pace, aggressive & above all, he has found total belief in his capabilities. This is great for ‘Naija’ & Everton. Bravo Lampard and Alex!!”
Iwobi will now hope to continue his impressive display for Frank Lampard’s side next weekend when they face Arsenal in an away Premier League tie at Emirates Stadium.
