The now 39-year-old former Toffees number four played well over 250 appearances for Everton as numbers from Transfermarkt show, and to celebrate his birthday the club decided to commemorate this occasion by wishing the former Super Eagles captain well as well as showcasing one of the 10 goals Yobo scored at the club.
With plenty of fans remembering Yobo’s time at the club, some wished the defender a happy birthday on social media as well as remember his impact on the club.
Here is what some Everton fans had to say on Twitter…
Its unbelievable 😉
