Alex Iwobi, a star for Everton, has acknowledged that the forthcoming season’s preparations have been rigorous.
The international player from Nigeria reported last week for preseason duty.
Prior to the new season, the 27-year-old and his teammates from the Toffees have been working out in Switzerland.
Iwobi asserted that the challenging circumstances will prepare the team for the start of the new season.
It was obviously my first week back, so it’s been difficult. Although difficult, hot, and muggy, those conditions will benefit us this season, he told everton.com.
Iwobi assisted in Everton’s 2-1 victory over Stade Nyonnais in their opening preseason game last weekend.
