Former Super Eagles captain, Joseph Yobo, is expected to resume training with his teammates today (Thursday) ahead of his planned debut for his new club, Kano Pillars.

The 36-year-old played 101 times for the national team and also enjoyed a fruitful career playing in top leagues across Europe.

As an ambassador of the League Management Company, LMC, Yobo was contracted to star in the country’s top flight to further boost the followership of the domestic league.

Yobo, who was born in Kano, opted to play for Pillars ahead of other interested clubs which included Akwa United, Wikki Tourists and even big spenders, FC Ifeanyi Ubah.

Yobo is expected to make his maiden appearance for Pillars in their next home game which is a Match Day 34 clash against Sunshine Stars this weekend.

Aside playing for Everton, Yobo has also starred for top European clubs including Fenerbache in Turkey among others.

He was originally meant to play the last 12 games of the season but with the delays, Yobo may just be staring in five game as the league is in its later stages.
