Taribo begins return journey from Libya • Why the coaches want him back


Joseph Yobo made an elementary mistake at the weekend and ensured Manchester United dealt a 2-0 blow on them. United led 1-0 when Yobo, without any pressure on him passed the ball back to Everton keeper without watching. Rooney collected the gift and converted easily.

Joseph Yobo made an elementary mistake at the weekend and ensured Manchester United dealt a 2-0 blow on them. United led 1-0 when Yobo, without any pressure on him passed the ball back to Everton keeper without watching. Rooney collected the gift and converted easily.

But before this blunder Yobo had blundered too for Nigeria, largely causing Super Eagles defeat in Angola and the goal Gabon scored in Libreville when an attacker just waltzed past him to score although Nigeria later equalised.

But this cannot take away all his great efforts for Nigeria. Yobo has been fantastic for the country. But the fact remains that Eagles have problem at the central defence. And this informs why Taribo West has been given a chance to stage a return to the team where he was the rock for years. Yobo remains a pillar in the team but he appears not to be getting enought support.

Pairing him with Taribo may work. And today in Lybia, the man with boot and the Bible steps out to play for Nigeria again. The last time he played was at the Korea-Japan World Cup with injury denying him a place in the Tunisia 2004 Nations Cup squad.

Many who have noticed the problems in Eagles defence welcome the return of Taribo while some feel that his time is over. There are those who would still want to watch him again before concluding. This reporter is in this school and Taribo would begin to show why he should be in the team or not.

Otasowie means evening life is better than morning life. There is an error in your “evening life is better than evening life”?

Sokari doesn’t mean joy. Joy is Biobela. Go to the village and ask the meaning of the name.
