Former national team skipper, Joseph Yobo, has revealed how Taiye Taiwo brought aura into the Super Eagles.

Taiwo became an instant hit in the Super Eagles side thanks to his strength and speed as his influence grew. One of his highlights was his unstoppable freekick which handed Nigeria a 1-0 win over Ghana on his Africa Cup of Nations debut in 2006. ‘If I was Barcelona president, I’d sign Neymar tomorrow’ – Balde says Brazilian could ‘play for any team’ In a chat with Goal, Yobo disclosed that he had a good relationship with everyone in the squads he played in, but was not shy from admitting the impression made by the sturdy defender. “Everybody in the national team were my friend because I started very early and also became a leader early as well. So I wrapped my hands around everybody and enjoyed every moment in the Super Eagles,” Gernot Rohr’s assistant told Goal. “In pure honesty, one person who caught my fancy when he came to the national team was Taiye Taiwo. “I watched him play for Nigeria U20. At that level, I loved his shots and how he was playing aggressively; I couldn’t help but wait for the time he would graduate to the senior national team. “And that came through for him when he made his Super Eagles debut. He is such a happy and loveable guy.” Yobo left Olympique Marseille in 2003, while his compatriot was signed for the French outfit two years later – and that reinforced their relationship when on national duty. For the Everton legend, Taiwo was an epitome of optimism and courage, and was staggered why Nigerians don’t talk about him despite his contributions. “We had a good relationship because his manager was one of my very good friends, so we had that bond in the national team and grew really fast. His presence was enormous,” he continued. “Even when I am thinking about the game as captain, he would come with his energy and tell me ‘skippo’ [captain], no shaking, don’t worry, we are going to beat these people’. For me, Taiwo brought a whole lot to the national team. “One thing I tell people is that football is about team spirit and that is very important. When I have him by my side, I feel confident because he had everything. That’s how good he was. “I knew he was growing and still needed some works but on his day, he could win you a game whether by his free-kick, pass or running forward. read also:Former Eagles stars mourn Taiye Taiwo’s dad “I’m surprised people don’t talk about him maybe because he is underrated, but I rate him very high because of his quality and the aura he brought to the Super Eagles.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享

Former Arsenal captain, Arteta, assistant to Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, is the leading candidate to succeed Unai Emery at the London club. This emerged after their chief executive, Vinai Venkatesham, was pictured outside the 37-year-old’s house early on Monday. Another of Wenger’s former players, Swede Freddie Ljungberg, is currently interim head coach, but looks set to be overlooked for the top job. “I am an Arsenal supporter and at the moment I support the manager in charge and the manager in charge is Ljungberg. When Arteta will be in charge I will support Arteta,” said Wenger. But the Frenchman, who won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups during nearly 22 years in charge of the club, said he saw many positives in both men. “He (Arteta) is intelligent, he has passion, he has knowledge, but Ljungberg (does) as well,” Wenger added. “I believe that Arteta has certainly a great future, he has certainly learned a lot in his first position as an assistant coach and after that as well he will have to deal with the fact that he has no experience at that level and he will have to get surrounded well.” However, Wenger, 70, who left Arsenal in 2018, said the club needed to be smarter in their recruitment. He added that it was not necessarily the case that they needed a lengthy period to get back to their best. “When I left the club was in a very strong financial position and they bought many players in-between, they have not all worked out,” he said. “I believe that it’s not a question of time. The change can be very efficient very quickly, it’s just about the right decision-making and that’s all that it’s about in football, it’s about good players. “We speak about the success of Liverpool. Of course they have a great manager, but you have to say as well that in the last three to four years, they bought the right players.” Last month, Wenger was appointed FIFA’s new chief of global football development and is in Doha observing the Club World Cup.Tags: ArsenalArsene WengerManchester CityMikel ArtetaPep Guardiola
