Everton manager, Carlo Ancelotti has come out to say that he feels Alex Iwobi needs more confidence to play in the wingback position for the club.
Ancelotti recently revealed that he was pleased with the Nigerian’s performance vs Fulham because he covered the position very well.
According to him, Iwobi is a very good player and he just needs to be more confident to fill in the gap that has been created in the squad as a result of injury.
He added that Everton will be able to adapt to the loss of Lucas Digne because he has a good first team and substitutes.
His words, “I was happy about his performance [against Fulham]. He did well. He can cover that position as a full-back,”
“Iwobi is a good player but he needs to feel that confidence, as does everyone! For Alex, it’s important to feel there are people that have confidence in him.
“During a season, it can happen that you lose some important players and we have to manage this situation.
“I think we will be able to adapt to the loss of Lucas Digne. We have a good squad, good substitutes in that position [full-back].
“Nkounkou doesn’t have experience in the Premier League but showed good quality in the game he played. He is young but has a lot of quality
“We have Jonjoe Kenny on the right, we have the possibility to substitute and we will try. Three centre-backs can be an option. Alex Iwobi can play on the left as a wing-back without a problem.”
