Former Everton and Manchester United manager David Moyes will be among the names expected to honour former Nigeria defender Joseph Yobo at his testimonial game this summer in Nigeria.
Yobo announced on Tuesday that the game will be played in his home city of Port Harcourt
“It has been an absolute honour for me to have represented my country, and played at the highest level for over 13 years, and I am humbled to see so many great people turn out here,” he said.
“I was David Moyes’ first signing at Everton, and he has confirmed to me that he will be here for the game.
“I have not even made that many calls, but already, a lot of my former teammates for all the clubs I played in have been calling that they want to be part of this game. It has been a humbling last few days for me.”
Liverpool defender Kolo Toure sent in a message of support via video link, promising to be present with other Premier League stars.
Yobo began his career at non-league Michelin FC in Port Harcourt, before leaving for Standard Liege in Belgium. He went on to play for Marseille, Everton, Fenerbahce and Norwich and captained Nigeria to African Nations Cup success in 2013.
