Alex Iwobi: Nigerian star says playing for Everton makes him better footballer

- Alex Iwobi says playing for Everton has made a more professional man in him

- The sensational forward switched to Toffees in the last summer transfer from Arsenal

- Iwobi also reveals he is desperate to help Everton have a wonderful campaign under new coach

Alex Iwobi has relished the challenge of getting back to action for Everton after a full recovery from injury, saying he is more hungrier and ready to make his impact for the Carlo Ancelotti's side.

The Nigerian international joined Everton from Arsenal in the last summer and has made impressive 17 appearances for the Toffees this season.

Iwobi, who just returned from injury, has now vowed to help Everton have a wonderful campaign, saying their epic comeback over Watford is an indication that the club is back to the winning way.

“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 per cent.

The 23-year-old forward got a hamstring injury during a tough encounter against Arsenal in December.

Upon his recovery, he revealed that playing the club has made him a new man different from his side at Emirates Stadium.

“It has made me a new man in that sense. It is good for me. Here, I have to focus tactically when we do not have the ball.

“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,'' Iwob further submitted.

Ndidi picked up a knock in training on Tuesday, January 7, and was left on the sidelines for four weeks, missing Leicester vs Aston Villa Carabao Cup first leg clash last year due to a knee injury.

The Nigerian international made a return as a 34th-minute substitute in City's 4-1 Premier League win over West Ham in January. He later went on to play full 90 minutes during Carabao Cup second leg clash against Villa.
