Everton manager, Carlo Ancelotti has come out to beg Alex Iwobi to tell him his preferred position on the pitch. Carlo recently revealed that he read the Nigerian’s latest Instagram post, so he needs to be direct with his manager on his favourite position.
According to Ancelotti, Andrea Pirlo was deployed to the midfield at his request during his time at AC Milan, so it will not be the first time such will happen.
He added that he is very willing to adapt the way Everton plays to suit where Iwobi loves to play on the field.
His words, “I read the post. I want to speak to him, of course. I want to know his preferred position because usually, I want to put a player on the pitch where they are comfortable to play, not where they are uncomfortable to play,”
“If he has an idea of where he prefers to play I have to know, I want to know. I would be delighted to know his preferred position and I’ll put him in his preferred position for sure, no doubt.”
“I am going to tell him: ‘Tell me, I am your manager, tell me where you want to play. When I thought to put Pirlo as a holding midfielder I asked him: ‘Do you like to play there or not?’. ‘Yes’, he said to me, ‘I’d love to play there’ and so I put him there.”
“If he wants to play number 10 or number nine I’ll put him at number 10 or number nine no problem. I can adapt the system.”
