Super Eagles' Appoints Joseph Yobo As New Assistant Head Coach

The Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) has confirmed that it has appointed former Super Eagles skipper, Joseph Yobo as Super Eagles assistant coach following Imama Amapakabo’s removal.

After Imama Amapakabo was ushered through the exit door, the three-time African champions turned to a familiar face for inspiration.

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 head coach Gernot Rohr.

The NFF statement reads: “The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has appointed former Super Eagles’ defender and captain Joseph Yobo as assistant coach of the team. He replaces Imama Amapakabo in the three -ime African champions’ technical crew,”

Before his retirement from international football, Yobo participated in three Fifa World Cups and six Africa Cup of Nations finals.

At club level, he won two Turkish Cups as well as one Super Lig title, and was voted in Africa’s best XI for the 2007–08 season.

Before then, he became Everton’s second player to feature in all 38 Premier League games without missing a single minute, during the 2006-07 season under David Moyes.

He is expected to make his bow when the Super Eagles entertain Sierra Leone on March 23 as they commence the fight for a place in next Afcon 2021 hosted by Cameroon.
