Iwobi As Super Eagles Number 10 Is Wrong – Ex Super Eagles Star Tasks Rohr To Get A Creative Midfielder
Former Nigeria international Victor Ikpeba says coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Gernot Rohr should stop playing Alex Iwobi as the number ten in the Super Eagles set up.
Iwobi has for a while played the role for Nigeria and even when he is drafted to the wings he is under specific instruction to drift into the playmaker role when the team is in possession.
With the Super Eagles suffering from a lack of creativity in the middle, Ikpeba says the coach should intensify his search for a midfielder who can’t create chances instead of relying on Alex Iwobi.
He says the idea of playing the Everton man in that role could work on the African scene but not on the global scene due to his lack of creativity.
“We lack that creativity in the midfield. We don’t have that players such as Austin Okocha and Wilson Oruma in the midfield that cancreate chances for our strikers.
“In Africa, its fine but playing at the world stages, we need someone that is creative. Alex Iwobi can’t do the job for us at the moment.” he said on Monday night football on Super Sports.
