Jamie Redknapp told Sky Sports during their live coverage of Everton’s win at Wolves on Tuesday that ‘it hasn’t really happened’ for Alex Iwobi since his move to Everton.
Last summer, with Marco Silva at the helm, Everton paid Arsenal big bucks for Iwobi’s talents.
Whilst the versatile attacker wasn’t seemingly Everton’s first choice, it has been more stop than start for the North London academy product on Merseyside.
Nonetheless, after he scored a well-taken goal against Wolves on Tuesday, Redknapp praised him for stepping up.
“Iwobi to pop up and score a goal,” said Redknapp. “It hasn’t really happened for him since he has gone to Everton.
“But this [goal] will mean so much to him and it will mean so much to the manager.
“It shows that you aren’t just reliant on the likes of Calvert-Lewin getting goals.”
Carlo Ancelotti has proven during his time at Goodison Park that he can improve individual players.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Mason Holgate, Michael Keane and Yerry Mina are just examples of players who have improved under his stewardship.
Whilst Iwobi hasn’t taken his game to the heights that a Calvert-Lewin has, his talents and performances are now looking more promising in an Everton shirt than they were 12 months ago.
