Gernot Rohr speaks on Alex Iwobi playmaking abilities

| |

Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has showered encomium on Arsenal attacker, Alex Iwobi following his efforts to fit in as the national team’s latest playmaker.

Rohr, though, noted further that Iwobi is doing more than a playmaker, as he does not just stop at playing through the middle, but can also do a great job down the flanks.

The German gaffer is awed by Iwobi’s abilities to play as a winger and still throw crucial passes when necessary, as he links up in an almost perfect manner with all his teammates through the middle.

He further said he has other players in the Eagles that are capable of playing the same role as Iwobi is doing for the team, he admits that the Arsenal star has been outstanding so far.

Rohr stated: “Alex is playing better and better and his enthusiasm on the pitch is good for our team.

“A natural evolution made him a playmaker, but he can also come from a wing and play with the others in his special style.

“The one – two and quick short passes which can be decisive. We have other players who can also play that important role too.”
