Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has commended Ebere Ee for his versatility in the team.
The England U21 international, who is still under the radar of the Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr to represent Nigeria, has dazzled fans with his skills, speed, and ability to carve out opportunities for his teammates.
The 22-year-old has been outstanding since he moved to Selhurst Park on a five-year deal from Queens Park Rangers in August.
He has a tally of three goals after 20 league appearances for Roy Hodgson’s side this season.
However, Hodgson, during Friday’s press conference showered encomium on Eze for adapting into any position that has been saddled to him.
“He’s a very talented ball player, a very good offensive midfielder. We’re trying to encourage him to be a good all-round midfield player.
“I don’t think it’s a problem playing him in a position slightly in-field because that’s where he spent a lot of his time for Queens Park Rangers. He even spent a lot of time centrally in behind the forward.”
“So it’s just a different position that we asked him to play on Monday night in terms of giving us the set up to play Leicester that we wanted, but it certainly wasn’t asking him to do anything that he’s uncomfortable with, and if you ask him, of course, he prefers to be further infield than playing out wide”.
