Oliseh waxes lyrical about Iwobi after another great performance for Everton

Iwobi stars in Merseyside derby

Sunday Oliseh was proud of Alex Iwobi after his incredible performance for Everton in their 0-0 draw against Liverpool in a Merseyside derby.

Alex Iwobi was again one of the best players on the pitch for Everton as Frank Lampard’s side secured a point against their city rivals Liverpool.

The former Arsenal player who now plays in the midfield was splendid defensively and in the attack for Everton – his performance was noticed by Toffees who sang his name.

And his performance wasn’t just noticed by Evertonians but also by a former Nigerian international Sunday Oliseh.

The former Super Eagles manager praised Alex Iwobi for his display against Liverpool and growth over time.

“Alex Iwobi’s Performance today especially, and in recent months, has me excited and makes me so proud as a compatriot,” said Oliseh on via his official Twitter page

“Vision, physical, clairvoyance, pace, aggressive and above all, he has found total belief in his capabilities.

“This is great for ‘Naija’ & Everton. Bravo Lampard and Alex!!”

After struggling to fit in at Everton under previous managers, Alex Iwobi has established himself under Frank Lampard who he said gave him the freedom to express himself.
