Yobo denies signing for Kano Pillars

01 September 2016, 16:25Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Former Super Eagles captain Joseph Yobo has denied joining Nigeria Premier League club Kano Pillars.

The former Everton defender signed a deal with the League Management Company, LMC, organisers of the Nigerian top flight, which will see him star for a domestic league club as a means of promoting and adding value to the league by attracting more spectators to the various league match venues.

As a result, Complete Sports reported that Yobo has signed for Kano Pillars in an interview with Shehu Dikko, Chairman of the LMC.

But Yobo on Thursday denied signing with Kano Pillars or any other club in the Nigeria Premier League.

“I read that I was missing in action last weekend. I have not signed for Kano Pillars or any NPFL club. Yet.” He tweeted.

News24 reported in May that the former Everton defender officially ended his football career with a testimonial game played in Port Harcourt.
