Alex Iwobi has been rated the world’s seventh best playmaker, trailing only some of the game’s top players, like Kevin De Bruyne and Lionel Messi.
Every time someone compiles a ranking of football players, there will always be some opposition to at least one of the players on the list.
We’re never going to agree on anything, whether it’s that Messi is better than Cristiano Ronaldo or that Ronaldo is better than Messi, depending on the list.
Few people, if any, would contest De Bruyne’s status as the game’s top passer at the moment, which is only made clear by the fact that he has Erling Haaland as a target.
Both men contribute to each other’s success, although the Belgian midfielder was already regarded as one of the top players in the world before the Norwegian moved to Manchester City.
The Manchester City playmaker has been ranked as the best playmaker in the world by Four-Four-Two.
Messi, Martin Odegaard, and Christian Eriksen round out the top four, which is not surprising, but the fact that Iwobi is the only other player from the Premier League in the top seven may be.
