Former captain and defender of the Super Eagles, Mr. Joseph Yobo has denied media reports linking him to the Kano Pillars.
Reacting to the story that became viral, Yobo stated that he had not joined the Kano based team or any other Nigeria Professional Football League club.
The League Management Company had announced that Yobo had agreed to join the Sai Masu Gida and could feature against Sunshine Stars last weekend.
Initially, the former Super Eagles captain had agreed to come out of retirement and play in the NPFL for the remainder of the season as an ambassador.
“I read that I was missing in action last weekend. I have not signed for Kano pillars or any NPFL club. Yet,” Joseph Yobo twitted recently on his handle @jyobo234 on September 1, 2016.
