Yobo also used the opportunity to announce his testimonial, which will be played in Port-Harcourt on the 27th of May.
Former Everton and Manchester United manager, David Moyes; Manchester United Forward, Wayne Rooney; Manchester City midfielder, Yaya Toure and three times African Footballer of the year, Didier Drogba among
other top footballers are expected to grace the occasion.

about him as a player,” Yobo’s Eagles teammate, Okocha said.
