Alex Iwobi has credited Everton manager Rafael Benitez for his improved form at the start of the season.
The former Arsenal youngster revealed how the training sessions of the Spanish coach has impacted his game as well as the team’s overall performances.
Benitez replaced Carlo Ancelotti at Goodison Park in June and as a result, the Nigeria international has played in every one of Everton’s matches this season, and he has a goal with an assist to his name already.
“The manager is always talking to me and trying to help me,” Iwobi told Everton TV. “It’s helped me a lot so far this season.
“I just need to add more goals and assists, like the manager wants. With the manager, he doesn’t give us any rest, he’s onto us 24/7. This is what we need.
“You can see everyone’s playing with a lot of confidence. That big motivation is there [to continue achieving positive results].
“We’ve started off very well, but we have to keep going until the end. It’s a marathon, not a sprint.”
