'Rhoo' Named In EPL's Top 100
Former Bafana Bafana skipper and legend, Lucas "Rhoo" Radebe has been named as one of the Premier League's 100 greatest ever players.
British newspaper, the Daily Telegraph confirmed its list of the "Premier League's 100 greatest ever players" and, the former Leeds United skipper is among a few current and former African players to have made the cut.
Radebe captained the senior national men's team, Bafana Bafana, 70 times, and spent over a decade at Eland Road featuring in 197 games.
A member of the 1996 class that won the Africa Cup of Nations on home soil, 'The Chief' came in at position number 78, beating the likes of Nigerian, Jay-Jay Okocha (93), Michael Ballack of Germany (95) and England great, John Barnes (100).
The former Kaizer Chiefs man led Bafana Bafana at the 1998 and 2002 World Cups in France and Japan & South Korea respectively.
Ivory Coast and Manchester City star Yaya Toure comes in at 19th, but he is not the highest ranked African player on the list. That honour goes to Chelsea striker Didier Drogba, who is ranked 15th.
Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs tops the list.
