Everton won’t be relegated – Iwobi – Punch Newspapers
Midfielder, Alex Iwobi, has made a relegation pledge to Everton fans that the Toffees won’t be relegated at the end of the season, Saturday PUNCH reports.
For the third time in their history, Everton go into the final day of the season with their Premier League status on the line.
Currently placed 17th in the Premier League table, Everton who face Bournemouth in their final league game on Sunday must win to stay up in the Premier League regardless of what rivals Leeds United and Leicester City do in their games at home to Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United respectively.
The Nigeria international who has featured in all of the Toffees EPL games so far this season, says the will be focused on their task of defeating the Cherries and not what happens in other games.
“I don’t think we’ll be distracted by focusing on any other game,”Iwobi said.
“Because on the day as long as we get the result and get the win, it doesn’t really matter about any of the other results. So that will be our focus.
“It just makes me feel like it is a privilege and an honour to represent such a big club.
“It shows me who I am doing this for. I am not just doing it for people here, I am actually talking to people and it affects them and if Everton go down they will be devastated.”
“It shows how much Everton means to them. If I am not doing this for myself, then at least let me do it for them.”
