Legend! Radebe Honoured At Major Leeds Celebrations

Former Bafana Bafana captain, Lucas Radebe, was one of a group of Leeds United legends to be honoured at their centenary celebrations, underlying his importance in the club’s history.

Check out some images from Radebe’s big weekend in the gallery above!

The ex-Kaizer Chiefs man spent more than a decade with Leeds between 1994 and 2005, writing his name into legend at the club as he turned down a move to Manchester United in favour of remaining in West Yorkshire.

Radebe, now 50, was asked to be a part of the 100-year celebrations at Leeds where they held a centenary dinner and welcomed several club legends onto the field prior to their clash with Birmingham City in the English Championship.

Having made such an impact during his time at Elland Road, Radebe was also part of a ‘dreamscene’ piece of art that was commissioned for the club, with the centre back portrayed in the middle of the image alongside some of the greatest players to have ever donned the club’s colours (see the painting in the gallery above).

It rounded off a good week for the Radebe family after Lucas’ son, Lucas Jnr, penned his first deal in England when he signed for Farsley Celtic – also based in West Yorkshire – and the young attacker will be looking to try and follow in his dad’s footsteps.
