Former Nigerian captain, Joseph Yobo has officially resumed as the new assistant coach of the Super Eagles’ after being appointed for the role back in February.
The 40-year-old who captained the Super Eagles to a triumphant 2013 Africa Cup of Nations outing in South Africa was named as Gernot Rohr’s assistant by the Nigeria Football Federation in February.
He was expected to make his managerial bow against Sierra Leone a month later, however, that did not materialise as the coronavirus pandemic placed all football related activities on hold.
The former Super Eagles captain, recently joined the squad in Austria for the friendly games against Algeria and Tunisia.
Sharing a photo of himself posing with head coach Gernot Roh, he wrote:
