Joseph Yobo Joins Kano Pillars

by on August 25, 2016
Former Super Eagles skipper, Joseph Yobo, has signed for Kano Pillars.
The deal, which makes him an ambassador of the League Management Company (LMC), will see him feature in the domestic league as a way of promoting and adding value to the competition.
Yobo, who starred in Everton defence for 10 years between 2002 and 2012, was released by Fenerbache in 2014 after an unsuccessful loan spell with Norwich in the Premier League.
The 35-year-old, who has retired from international football, would be playing club football after two years of leaving Fenerbahce.
Kano Pliiars will be the fifth club and country that the 101-time capped international will have plied his trade in after he broke through in Belgium before spells in England, France and Turkey.

    This is good news for Nigeria football. If all our national team players usually return home to play for a year or two just to contribute to the growth of the game in Nigeria, our football would have grown a lot and our stadiums would have been filled week in week out with fans ready to pay to watch. This is one of the major secret of South American football.
    Thank you Joseph Yobo. I hope others will follow soon because one tree can’t make a forest.
