Former Super Eagles defender, Joseph Yobo, has taken to social media to pay an heartfelt tribute to Stephen Keshi, the former Nigeria coach who died four years ago.

'Your legacies live on' – Joseph Yobo remembers Stephen Keshi 4 year after his death

Stephen Keshi passed away on June 7, 2016, after suffering a heart attack at the

age of 54 on this day four years ago just six months after he lost his wife, Kate, to cancer.

Yobo who is now the Super Eagles’ assistant coach, took to social media to

share a moving tribute to his mentor.

“Dear coach, it’s been four years today since you left us to rest with the Lord. You are deeply missed but your legacy lives on! Rest on the Big Boss,” Yobo wrote on Instagram.

Keshi before his death was the only man after Mahmoud El-Gohary to win the Africa

Cup of Nations as a player and coach and is regarded as a Nigerian football legend.

Yobo developed a strong relationship with Keshi during his time as Super Eagles

coach, having captained his team to winning the 2013 Afcon tournament South

Africa and helping Nigeria to the round of 16 in the 2014 World Cup.
