Joseph Yobo

The good times are back again. Yes! After an uncertain period of time not knowing whether, he was going to go back to England or he would be retained in Turkey. The answer was finally sorted as the much loved Captain of the Nigerian National Football team- The Super Eagles, Captain Joseph Yobo, who is also Nigeria’s most capped footballer till date, finally put pen to paper and sealed a 3 years deal with the Nos 1 team in the Turkish League- Fenerbahce Fc of Turkey. According to our bird with very large ears, the 3 years deal  would cost the Turkish team in excess of $10Million dollars, which in Naira translate to about N1.6 Billion Naira, that’s not all: he is also entitled to another $1Million Dollars in Bonuses per year, this translate to another 160 Million Naira every year for the next 3 years. That’s another 480 Million to be added to the 1.6 Billion contract.

From the little we could gather, Fenerbahce paid his former club in England, Everton FC, $2.5 Million dollars to facilitate the full transfer, that had been dragging on for 2 seasons now,this made JY who is referred to as the ‘Prince of Istanbul’ by the many vociferous fans of Fenerbahce  FC to spend 2 seasons on loan at the Turkish Club before this deal was finally sealed.

The beauty of the contract signed by JY from what we can gather, is that all the payment is ”TAX FREE” unlike in the UK where 35% tax is deducted from source from their salaries. So men this is what life should be like.

Congratulations to the great JY.
