Nigerian fans have condemned the recent rantings of Super Eagles’ skipper, Joseph Yobo, on a radio station over his non-inclusion in the team that played in the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Kenya in Calabar.

Yobo had said in the interview that he feels disrepected as the captain of the national team that he wasn’t given prior notice by Coach Stephen Keshi and he feels bad he wasn’t in the team. An aggrieved fan, who tweets under the name, ‘Oge Man Utd’, wrote on his time line on the social network site: “Yobo is still ‘relevant’ because of the Nigerian we-respect-you-for-the-number-of-years-spent-in-the-Eagles norm.

“He cannot utter such callow hogwash at his club in Turkey. I don’t blame him at all.” Another, who writes under ‘Olayinka’, joined in the fray thus: “Granted Keshi should have called him, but going to the press? Childish! “ He wants to play by force, poor leader.”

And Adeyemi Adesanya, a soccer analyst added his voice: “By running to the press, Yobo is seeking for attention.” Yobo’s teammate in the Eagles, Vincent Enyeama, has jumped to support his captain by insisting that the former Everton defender remained relevant in the Eagles’ squad.

  1. I don’t know wot yobo think he is?when David note his formal coach at Everton drop for letting in goals.his inability to recover fast and lack of confidence wit d ball,he can keep d ball and poor passes..

  2. Livinus Aggey on

    It is not Yobo’s fault, It is because Nigeria struggled to play a draw with Kenya that has made him seek relevance.
    If Nigeria had beaten Kenya by 3-0, he would have been begging to be invited for the return leg.
    Coach Keshi should look for a good replacement for him and apply Jose Mourhino’s principle that has seen Ike Casilas warming the bench in Real Madrid.

  3. Yobo has served us well, no doubt. I expected him to have retired from Intl career after lifting the AFCON 2013 cup. This is the common problem with our Black race, in fact, African race generally (politically and otherwise) – we want to hold unto power for way too long; we want to be disgraced out of office; we hardly retire when the ovation is loudest. Yobo, please retire honourably. I am personally pleased with your service to our country, but do not allow yourself to slip to ignominy

  4. Nabel an upright guy on

    Yobo y re u forcing ur self to be included in the national team,personally i knows very well that u made ur way to the national team based on man know man(im)ur nt skillful,no confidence.mehnnnn yobo give gap so that guys wey sabi will play for us period.
