Joseph Yobo reacts to Alex Iwobi’s move from Arsenal to Everton


Former Super Eagles captain, Joseph Yobo, has commented on Alex Iwobi’s move from Arsenal to Everton.

GhanaMotion had reported that Iwobi agreed a five-year contract with Everton, in a deal worth £40million last Thursday.

Yobo, a former Everton defender, commended Iwobi for joining Marco Silva’s men.

“I must commend Alex Iwobi for making that bold move. Everton is a quality team and I’m happy as an Evertonian that we acquired a talent like him,” Yobo told Goal.

“I think the main reason behind this is his playing time and I’m sure he will get that but he has to work harder than what he does in Arsenal.

“Apart from that, he’s got everything to succeed and I’m not surprised that huge bid was made for him.

“In my own opinion, it’s a good move because staying with Arsenal who brought in [Nicolas] Pepe will reduce his playing time. Here, he will learn more which will make him grow and more matured in the game.”
