Radebe Honoured

Former Bafana Bafana captain Lucas Radebe was on Friday night honoured as with a Life Time Award during the Gauteng Sports Awards at Monte Casino in Johannesburg. 

The former Leeds United captain cried before thanking the Gauteng province for honouring him.

"I don't know what to say. I would just like to thank the MEC for this award.  I am really honoured by this award and know that I join the former winners. When I started playing football in those dusty fields of Diepkloof I didn't know I would reach where I reach. I played football because I loved it. It was tough growing up as a black South African and I would have dreamt of playing in the English Premiership and captaining the national team to two World Cup finals. But all this was possible due to the late former president the late Nelson Mandela. I am grateful for all this," Radebe said.

He then donated the R30 000 prize money to a charity that he would not mention.
