In today's edition of Supporters Club Did You Know, we bring you some fascinating trivia about Lucas Radebe and how he initially wanted nothing to do with Kaizer Chiefs.
The first time Chiefs came to watch Lucas Radebe play was when he was with amateur side Birds United. The legendary Ace Ntsoelengoe was their scout and offered Lucas a place. "Rhoo" refused the offer because he was worried about the violence in Johannesburg at the time and did not want to go.
Amakhosi were relentless and approached his parents again to offer him a place at the club. They refused, saying that he should focus on his school studies instead.
The third approach was made by Kaizer Motaung himself, who offered Lucas a position. He initially declined again, but then Kaizer said "Okay, just come for a trial. If you like it you can stay, if not you can go back." Lucas finally accepted and that's how his life as a professional footballer began.
