Townsend hails Everton teammate Iwobi: Something has unlocked in his mind

Andros Townsend is predicting big things for Everton teammate Alex Iwobi.

The Nigeria attacker is showing career best form this season.

“This is the Alex we have seen in training, even when he wasn’t playing well or in the team,” Townsend told the Everton Live show. “This is the Alex we see in training. So skilful and he played with so much freedom, it is a joy to watch.

“When he came into the team last season he didn’t really have the confidence, it was more, ‘I am going to work as hard as I can’, and it has unlocked something in his mind.

“This season we have started to see a complete player. It is a joy to watch and literally the sky’s the limit for him.”
