(VANGUARD) Norwich City’s on-loan defender Joseph Yobo is expected to return to training on Monday,according to club’caretaker coach,Neil Adams.
He will however miss the Premier League trip to Manchester United with the Nigerian international undergoing further treatment on a calf injury.
Adams confirmed on Thursday Yobo could return for the penultimate game at Chelsea to bolster the club’s survival push.
“Joseph is still having treatment on his calf but we are hopeful of getting him back on Monday. He still has a problem and he wont be ready for this weekend,”Adams said. Yobo’s imminent return will be a big boost to Super Eagles gaffer, Stephen Keshi who is reportedly worried about the health of some of the players he intends taking to Brazil for the World Cup.
Yobo’s form for Norwich since he made the switch from Turkey has been impressive and local watchers of the sport are convinced he would be a quality addition to the team. A former Nigeria defender Efetobore Sodje is also convinced the former Everton defender will be a great addition to the team Keshi intends to take to Brazil.
“He has been the best Nigerian defender in Europe in the past three months. This and the fact that he is very experienced will be a big advantage to the team,”Sodje said in a recent interview.
