Next season, Nigeria International will work with the former Liverpool coach, who returned to the Premier League last season.
According to the majority of Round Africa readers, Everton’s new manager Rafael Benitez could struggle to make the most of Nigeria’s midfield star Alex Aubrey.
Benitez returned to the Mercy side last Wednesday, but this time he was unable to join Liverpool and his city rivals made Tafis rivals on a three-year deal.
The Spanish tactician replaces Carlo Ancelotti, who left his role to rejoin the Spanish giants Real Madrid at Goodson Park at the end of the 2020-21 season.
The former Castel United and former Real Madrid manager clearly has a lot on his plate, including helping players like Aubrey to regain his top form who, in turn, the team in the last term. Can help improve the 10th position.
According to a survey of Round Africa Twitter page, 44.2% of the people voted that Benitez would perform best to the former weapons midfielder, while the majority of voters (55.4) think otherwise.
Aubrey joined Everton from Emirates Stadium in August 2019 but has struggled to make an impact in the last two seasons.
He has scored just two goals and two assists in 55 Premier League appearances for the Taffy.
Last season, the Super Eagles midfielder played 36 games in all competitions and scored one goal each in the Premier League and League Cup.
A few months before his departure, Ancelotti had said that Aubrey’s limited playing time at Everton could be the result of widespread competition in the team.
“He’s a professional, but he plays sometimes when there’s competition and sometimes you’re on the bench.” Said.
“He’s not a disappointing player because he’s really professional, really serious, always ready, not at all, he’s a disappointing player, because he’s a great professional with an amazing attitude.”
Aubrey competed against Jelfi Sgurdsson, Andre Gomes, Abdule Dockwire, Richardson, Fabian Delph, Alan and Bernard in the middle of the park.
During the 2020-21 campaign, Aubrey was groomed to fill the position of Waveback on several occasions due to the injury crisis in Ano Slutti’s team.
The 24-year-old proved his resilience and also showed his defensive abilities.
