Moyes: No problem with Yobo
11 Oct 2008 - 09:45:49
Everton central defender Joseph Yobo has been backed to regain a first-team spot at Goodison Park by Toffees manager David Moyes.
The 28-year-old Nigeria international has had to settle for a place on the bench for Everton's last two games, but Moyes expects Yobo to respond in the right way.
He told the Daily Echo: "He will be back in the team, I am sure about that.
"He is disappointed because he wants to play. I expect that and understand that, but he's had a difficult start to the season.
"We gave him extra time off in the summer because of his international commitments, then he had an injury niggle and that's all contributed to him not being able to reach the fitness level he wants.
"With fitness comes concentration and he has missed that. He's not really got back to the level we would have liked.
"I've not had any problems with him at all.
"Of course he's disappointed, but he's not been banging down my door demanding explanations. We are looking to try and find a way to get him back in."
