Joseph Yobo says he will bring experience, motivation and inspiration to the Super Eagles, reports Completesports.com.
Yobo, a former captain of the three-time African champions was appointed assistant coach by the Nigeria Football Federation in February.
The former Everton defender took the place of Imama Amapakabo in the Super Eagles coaching set up.
“I am bringing back that motivation. As a former captain, I’m bringing inspiration. I’ve been there and I’ve done it all,”Yobo declared in a live instagram chat with Colin Udoh.
“I was a fan of the team before I became an assistant coach, so I’ve seen from a fanatical point of view how people feel when they are watching the team. We as players, while playing, don’t notice these things but after my retirement, I’ve been a pundit, I’ve given my opinion about what should be done in the team.”
Yobo also hopes his 15 years experience as a top professional will be vital for the team.
“I’m bringing in my experience. Having over 15 years of consistency in my career, I think that is a lot. The good thing is that the spirit is going to improve.
“Having been a pundit and looking at this team, I think we can go a lot higher with the quality we have.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
