Joseph Yobo wins Turkish Cup with Fenerbahce

The Nigerian captain has earned his second trophy with the big club from Istanbul when they defeated Bursaspor 4-0 on Wednesday

Nigeria skipper Joseph Yobo tasted victory with Fenerbahce on Wednesday when they defeated Bursaspor 4-0 to win the Turkish Cup.

It was the first time in 29 years that the big Istanbul-based club would win the title.

Fenerbahce went ahead in the second minute with their first attack as captain Alex de Souza, who was involved in all the goals, delivered a killer pass for Caner Erkin to score with ease.

Yobo’s side racked up several chances, including one effort disallowed for offside, before Cristian Baroni unleashed a fierce strike from outside the box.

Their opponents were unable to break Fenerbahce’s dominance in the second half, and Brazilian Alex crossed for Semih Senturk to slot home a third from close range.

Senturk then turned provider for Alex to finish off a counter-attack in the 78th minute that sealed the game.

Yobo, whose performance was rated at 7.0, was substituted in the 31st minute due to injury fears and replaced by Kersimal Serdar.

It was Yobo’s second major title with Fenerbahce following their league victory last season.
