“This is a whole different game for me, the Evertonians here, not just the players but the fans and staff. Everyone wants to give 100 percent,” Iwobi told the club’s official website.
“I am enjoying that side of the game. It has made me a new man in that sense. I wasn’t particularly like that [before coming to Everton] but I have had to buy into it and show more hunger when I am playing and towards the fans. It is good for me.
“Here, I have to focus tactically when we do not have the ball. I have to track back a bit more, carry out more defensive duties. No matter who I play for, I give 100 percent. Everton are making me do that and I am enjoying it.”
Iwobi has played 17 games for Everton this season will hope to get another chance when they Crystal Palace this weekend.
