Yobo flirts with clubs in South Africa
Former Nigeria international Joseph Yobo could make a sensational move to join one of the South Africa Premier League club sides, according to reports.
Joseph Yobo, who retired from international football after helping Nigeria to a round-of-16 place at the World Cup in Brazil, is in line to pitch his tent with one of the top sides in the South African Premier League, according to Africanfootball.com.
“Yobo fell in love with South Africa after leading Nigeria to both the 2010 World Cup and 2013 AFCON there. He even now wants to buy a house there and has already begun discussions in this regard,” the source informed.
“He has not played again since the World Cup in Brazil in the summer, but he still believes he still has something to offer in the game.
“His likely destination will be one of the top three clubs in South Africa.”
The 33-year-old, who led the Super Eagles to claim gold at the 2013 Nations Cup in South Africa, is a free agent who was released by Turkish side Fenerbache over the summer. He gained 100 caps for Nigeria before retiring, making him the highest-capped Nigerian player ever.
