Super Eagles assistant coach Imama Amapakabo has rallied support for newly signed Everton winger Alex Iwobi.
Iwobi, 22, joined the Toffees from Arsenal on Transfer deadline day.
Nigeria U23 gaffer Imama believes the player will play a huge role for Everton in the Premier League.
“I think he has been able to prove himself that he’s a good player, he didn’t just sell himself to Everton.
“He came for him knowing the reason why they came for him and the role he’s going to play for them,” Amapakabo told Football Live Nigeria.
“The league just started in England, let’s give him some time we will be able to have a discussion with anyone that will doubt Iwobi’s capabilities.
“He is a young lad, and he has his football ahead of him so, let us give him all the backing that we need to give him.
“Hopefully at the end of the season we would be able to take stock of how well he has fared with Everton.”
Iwobi was benched in Everton’s 1-0 win over Watford last Saturday.
