Joseph Yobo


Joseph Yobo may soon be on the way back into the good books of Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi, because the Fenerbahce defender will apologise to Keshi over his recent outburst.

The Super Eagles skipper had complained on a Lagos radio station that he is disappointed at Keshi and the Nigeria Football Federation because neither considered it correct to notify him of his non-inclusion in the team that took on Kenya.


However, in a twist to the tale, it has emerged that Keshi actually called Yobo, but the defender did not take the call.

“We now know for certain that Keshi called Yobo, but because he was either not paying attention, or it was a number he was not familiar it, he did not take the call,” a source in the NFF told


“It was when the matter blew up, and Keshi insisted that he called Yobo, and he checked to verify that he saw the missed call. He now discovered that indeed, the coach had tried to reach him.”

The president of the Nigeria Football Federation, Aminu Maigari, had already started a reconciliatory process, before it was disclosed that Keshi did make the call.
