Alex Iwobi says Everton teammate, Rodriguez quality ‘not normal’

Super Eagles star, Alex Iwobi has admitted he’s amazed by the quality of Everton teammate James Rodriguez.

Rodriguez, who earns £140,000-a-week at Goodison Park, has made an instant impact in his first year in English football.

The left-footed playmaker, who has played for Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and FC Porto, has six goals and eight assists in just 22 appearances for the Toffees.

Iwobi is amazed by the quality the 29-year-old possesses on his weaker right foot.

“What shocked me was his right foot finish, I didn’t know he had that in him,” Iwobi was quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

“Some of the passes he plays, I don’t know how he sees it. It’s not normal.”

Iwobi could make a return back to the Everton squad when they travel to Brighton and Hove Albion on Monday after he missed the Toffees 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace due to a minor knock.
