Yobo makes return to the Nigerian Professional Football League

Former Super Eagles captain, Joseph Yobo, has signed for Kano Pillars as a League Management Company (LMC) Ambassador and could make his debut as early as next week Wednesday against Sunshine Stars.

Four-time champions, Pillars got his signature ahead of FC Ifeanyi Ubah, Akwa United and Wikki Tourist who were all in the race to sign Yobo who won 101 caps with the Super Eagles.

The ex-Everton star, who will be 36 next month, signed a deal with the League Management Company (LMC), which will see him feature in the domestic league as a way of promoting and adding value to the competition.

Yobo started out playing in his local community, Khana Local Government Area of Rivers State as a centre back after which he officially kick started his career with Michelin FC Port Harcourt.

He afterwards joined Standard Liège in 1998, making his first team debut in 2000, and went on to appear 46 times.

He made his big break when he became the first signing of David Moyes at Premier league side Everton, going on to become one of the most consistent players in the Everton squad being one of only seven players in the entire league to play every minute of every game throughout the 2006–07 season;

The central defender also previously played for Turkish giants Fenerbache, as well as Norwich City in the Premier League.
