Joseph Yobo has been confirmed as the new Nigeria assistant coach
With Imama Amapakabo having been ushered through the exit door, the three-time African champions turned to a familiar face for inspiration.
A 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 from to the Super Eagles after representing the country at the U20 title during the 1999 Fifa U20 World Cup.
He is expected to make his bow when Rohr’s team face Sierra Leone on March 23 as the race for Cameroon 2021 commences..
