Ahead of Friday night’s EPL encounter between Aston Villa and Everton at the Villa Park, Everton head Coach Marco Silva says new signing Alex Iwobi is not ready for 90 minutes.
Iwobi joined the Toffees on transfer deadline for 45 million pounds to become Nigeria’s most expensive player but he’s yet to make his debut.
Ahead of the trip to the Villa Park, Marco Silva showered praises on Iwobi’s ability, but said the former Arsenal academy player needs time to be fully ready for a match situation.
Silva said “He is an exciting player with a lot of quality, so we will be patient till he can give us a 100 percent. He is ready to play because he loves playing, so we need to help him.”
Iwobi was part of the Super Eagles team that won bronze at the Egypt 2019 Africa Cup Of Nations scoring a goal and registering an assist.
