Former Nigerian international Joseph Yobo was one of the most difficult defenders to face. Despite this, he knew the toughest attackers, including Didier Drogba and Samuel Eto’o.

The Nigerian was the defender of Everton for 10 years. During his days in the English Championship, the player had the opportunity to play against some of the most difficult attackers. Among these star attackers, the former captain of the Nigerian national team mentioned the French Thierry Henry, the Ivorian Didier Drogba and the Cameroonian Samuel Eto’o as the most difficult attackers he faced.

Among all these attackers, Joseph Yobo puts former Tottenham striker Robbie Keane above everyone.
“There have been a few that have given me problems, like Didier Drogba,” he told Brila FM.

Thierry Henry is talented

“Thiery Henry stretched me a lot. I used to watch duels with him [Henry]. He was so fast, talented and skillful. You have to be in good shape to face Henry because he will embarrass you and score a hat-trick, but that has never happened to me, ”he said with a smile.

“I still love playing against Drogba, whom I can feel, and [Samuel] Eto’o, who I can identify. But when he lets you down, you have the choice of doing everything and leaving space or staying in my place. ”

“Robbie Keane one of the most intelligent”

“Keane plays in a position that was very difficult – out of the main striker. So when he puts down the attacker, it’s difficult to score him. Keane was one of the smartest I played against in the EPL. Its movement was very difficult because we were of different sizes. ”
