Iwobi credits Fulham coach for scoring form


Super Eagles midfielder Alex Iwobi has credited his new goal scoring form to Fulham manager Marco Silva.
The 27 year-old, Nigerian who returned from the African Cup of Nations to continue his fine start to his Fulham career, scored twice in the last three matches for the club. His goal in the 2-1 win against Manchester United at Old Trafford, earned him the Fulham Goal of the Month award.
 Iwobi’s flicked finish deep into stoppage time against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday was his sixth goal in 23 games since moving to Craven Cottage from Everton earlier this season.
“I enjoy playing under the gaffer and he gives me the confidence to keep going and play my football, so hopefully, the next goal will be on the winning side. It’s a bit of good form, and hopefully it can continue.”
The Nigerian reflected on a ‘missed opportunity’ as Fulham paid the penalty for failing to take their chances in a 2-1 defeat at Wolves.
Iwobi’s terrifically taken late strike wasn’t enough to salvage a point after Rayan Ait-Nouri and a deflected Nelson Semedo strike saw Wolves punish a slow Fulham start to the second period at Molineux.
Iwobi told FFCTV after the final whistle:“It feels like an opportunity missed, we had an opportunity to be clinical, but it wasn’t the case. They took their chances, and my goal at the end was a bit too late. We lost concentration and focus and we spoke about it after the game. We need to be concentrated for the full ninety minutes. We can’t switch off at this stage, we go again.”
