Super Eagles’ Joseph Yobo has revealed the quest to win trophies and an opportunity to feature in the Champions League made him leave Everton for Fenerbahce.

Having arrived in Liverpool in 2002 from Olympique Marseille, Yobo swiftly established himself as one of David Moyes’ reliable defenders with his consistent performances for the Toffees.

He was so dependable that he became Everton’s second player to feature in all 38 Premier League games without missing a single minute during the 2006-07 season.

“After spending about nine years at Everton for some reason, I realized that I needed a change,” said Yobo.
