The Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) on Wednesday, appointed former Super Eagles Captain and former Everton player Joseph Yobo as assistant coach of the Nigeria Senior Men’s football team, eliciting mixed reactions amongst football fans.
Yobo, with no previous coaching experience, or coaching certification replaces Imama Amapakabo as the assistant coach to Head coach Gernot Rohr.
Yobo since retirement has worked as an NFF ambassador and TV pundit with SuperSports. Some see the move as a good one for Nigerian football while others believe it is a political move aimed to replace Gernot Rohr.
