He was my first signing, I brought him from Marseille and it was great for me that is why I came to Nigeria today because of my respect for Joe,” Moyes told Pulse TV.

And also because he helped me when I was the manager at Everton, he did a great job for me.

Yobo retired as the most capped Super Eagles player and the Scottish manager said he always knew that the former defender was going to do great things in his career.

I always thought Yobo was a very good player,” Moyes continued.
