He did not take long before bringing an answer to accusations of Joseph Yobo. Yesterday we learned you the discontent of Super Eagles captain for not having been on the list of summoned for the match against Kenya in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers. Stephen Keshi has expressed his surprise at his words.
“I like the rage that Joseph shows regarding his desire to play for the team every time. But I think we cannot play all of our players in every game. For instance, this year we have a good number of games, and Joseph is always captain. We talked about it in South Africa during the Nations Cup and I explained to him that he is still very important in my team as captain, despite the fact that he comes from bench so. ”
“The truth is that the two boys (Kenneth Omeruo and Godfrey Oboabona) that play in central defense are doing a good job. Therefore call Yobo for a game like Kenya and then leave him on the bench or out of the team would be humiliating for him.
“ But this is a question I will flatten with Joseph because he is a fantastic professional. He showed it in South Africa and we still in need of his experience for some of great games we have to play in qualifications for the World Cup and the Confederations Cup in Brazil. So, he always still the team captain, “ concluded Stephen Keshi.
