Iwobi Gives Verdict On New Teammate After Winner Against Wigan


Super Eagles prodigy Alex Iwobi has sent a one-word message to Everton teammate Ashley Young after the debutant’s impressive display last weekend.

Young turned out in Everton blue for the first time last Saturday and scored the winning goal as the Toffees beat Wigan Athletic 1-0 in a friendly at the DW Stadium.

It was an overall impressive display from the £50k-a-week veteran, who joined on a free transfer from Aston Villa last week.

Taking to Instagram following his Everton debut, the 38-year-old posted: “First pre-season game done. Good few minutes in the tank and always nice to get on the scoresheet!

Found my shooting boots after hitting poor kid in the warm up with a wayward shot (hopefully you getting my shirt was enough of a sorry). Onto the next one. You away fans.”

In response to Young’s post, Everton teammate Alex Iwobi commented: “Playa!”
