The Everton legend has been named as Gernot Rohr’s assistant after Imama Amapakabo was relieved of his duties on Wednesday
The former Super Eagles’ captain was confirmed as Gernot Rohr’s assistant after Imama Amapakabo was shown the way out.
To some, Yobo has no coaching experience to be handed that role, while others feel it was a good call in the wake of the Premier League outfits naming ex-players in Frank Lampard and Mikel Arteta as club handlers.
Goal takes a look at some of the reaction to Yobo’s employment.

The NFF communique announcing Joseph Yobo’s appointment didn’t even mention anything about a coaching badge or prior experience.
It’s good having an ex-international back in the crew, but are things really done this way?
