Yobo NorwichSkipper of the Super Eagles, Joseph Yobo, has said that his immediate priority, is to ensure that Norwich City remain in the English Premier League.

However, the defender who is on loan from Fenerbahce, admitted that he still had the World Cup in his sights and expressed his belief that doing well with The Canaries, will only boost his chances.

“My main priority is Norwich, the World Cup after that,” Yobo told Mirror. “I need to be 100 per cent ready for the World Cup. Whatever I am going to do, going to the World Cup or my next move, this position gets me ready for anything.

“Fighting for relegation, I haven’t really been there in a long time. At Everton were pushing for Europe, at Fenerbahce we were pushing to win the league. But when you are down the bottom it is about grinding out results.

“It is strange and a different type of football. But I strongly believe Norwich will stay up.

“At home we are very dominant, we just have to improve our away form. It is not down to the manager – the players have to stand up and take more responsibility. We have made a few mistakes.

“It would be a big achievement to keep ‘The Canaries’ up.”

Yobo has not played for Nigeria, since he lifted the Africa Cup of Nations with the team last year in South Africa.
