There has been a lot of controversy concerning Joseph Yobo appointment as the new assistant coach of the super eagles but someone in the technical committee as come to his defense.
The Franco-German football tactician did not mince his words when he stated that the former Everton defender must have a coaching diploma in order to grow as a coach.
Bosso, who was privy to the appointment of Yobo by the Nigerian Federation before it was officially announced, stressed that the Super Eagles legend has met two of the three criteria required to be a coach in these parts, adding that he’s only lacking work experience.
“Yobo just came back from a course.
Basically there are three criteria.
The first one is your certificate, then the second one is your playing experience, then your work experience.
He has two out of the three – playing experience and his certificate,” Bosso said in an interview with Nigeria Info FM’s Bunmi Haruna monitored by allnigeriasoccer.com.
“Yobo has been a registered member of the coaching association in Rivers State.
“Of course, I am supporting the process that brought Yobo in.
He must have shown interest before accepting the job or gone for a course.
“He’s coming there as a second assistant coach not even the first.
Salisu has a contract with the NFF except otherwise.
” Bosso went on to say that Yobo will get the backing and confidence of the present Super Eagles players because he previously played the game at a high level and captained the squad.
“Most of the Super Eagles players basically are based in Europe, he is used to those places. The Super Eagles players on ground will give him respect because he’s an ex-international.
