Everton coach, Carlo Ancelotti has come out to say that James Rodriguez’s absence is a chance for Alex Iwobi to shine.
Ancelotti recently revealed that the Nigerian is very hard-working and has what it takes to hold his own on the pitch.
According to him, Iwobi can add more quality to Everton’s performance because he is a player who is fast and creative.
He added that he intends to choose a good line-up for the game against Southampton because the good form of his players in the EPL must continue.
His words, “We have to put in other players who have the desire to play,”
“We are working this week on this and I think we are going to choose a good line-up for the game against Southampton.
“Alex is a player who works hard. He is fast and with his quality he can help the team be better in certain situations.”
“He [potentially] has an opportunity to play but also we have Bernard and Anthony Gordon.
“We have a lot of opportunities to replace Richarlison and James. We are already moving on.”
