Keshi, Yobo clash at AFCON

by Agency Reporter

Super Eagles defender, Joseph Yobo appeared to have been involved in a major falling out with Stephen Keshi, reports.

A source from the Super Eagles camp in South Africa, according to the website, said the pair are only trying to manage the situation publicly. says the problem started before the captain arrived at the team pre-tournament camp in Faro, Portugal in late December, after officials questioned his fitness level.

The problems further escalated after Nigeria’s opening game against Burkina Faso in Nelspruit when Yobo suffered a minor ankle knock.

The website gathered that the incident and other issues has led to an irreconcilable difference between the duo as the skipper is still hanging around out of respect for the nation, fans and some Nigeria Football Federation officials.

There are strong indications that the player is expected to answer questions about the incident and make a strong statement at the end of Nigeria’s campaign at the tournament.
