I don’t regret Gunners exit – Iwobi


Alex Iwobi says he feels at home at Everton and doesn’t regret making the switch to Merseyside.

The forward made a last-minute move to Goodison Park last month, leaving Arsenal where he played since the age of eight to join Everton for a £35m fee.

He told Sky Sports how he feels training with the Toffees at Finch Farm.

“It’s so far, so good, I feel like I’ve got a new home and I’m really comfortable here.

“I got a few phone calls (about the deal) and spoke to my agent it took about a day of talking to the manager and talking to Marcel Brands. It wasn’t really hard and I got convinced.

“I was very comfortable (at Arsenal) and I was on holidays, so I didn’t think about any move. I got the call and thought about if this would be a better chance for me to improve myself as a player. I thought that this was a big opportunity and I shouldn’t turn it down. I’ve got no regrets about the decision.

“The ambition that Marco Silva has also persuaded me to come the drive, what he wants to achieve and the way he saw me in his plans, I feel like I’m able to help him do that. Even in training, he’s always demanding, always trying to get the best out of us and it’s good for the team.”
