Joseph Yobo becomes Super Eagles’ assistant coach

Former Super Eagles captain, Joseph Yobo, has been named as the assistant coach of the Nigerian national football team by the Nigeria Football Federation - NFF.

Yobo's appointment comes after Imama Amapakabo was shown the exit door.

The Everton legend captained the Super Eagles to a triumphant outing at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa, and will now assist Gernot Rohr.

An NFF statement read: “The Nigeria Football Federation has appointed former Super Eagles’ defender and captain Joseph Yobo as assistant coach of the team. He replaces Imama Amapakabo in the three-time African champions’ technical crew."

Yobo graduated to the Super Eagles after representing the country at the U20 level during the 1999 Fifa U20 World Cup.
