Some Interesting Facts About Rhoo!

Today in Supporters Club, we take a look at former Bafana Bafana and Leeds United captain Lucas Radebe and find out more behind the man on the field.

Here are 10 interesting facts about "Rhoo":

1. Radebe was born in Diepkloof, the fourth of 11 children.

2. He attended the local Bopasenatla Secondary School until he was 15 years old. His parents then sent him away in order to keep him safe from the violence in Soweto.

3. He joined ICL Birds and was spotted by Patrick Ntsoelengoe, who recruited him for Kaizer Chiefs in 1989.

4. Lucas originally started as a goalkeeper at Chiefs and then switched to central midfield and also central defence.

5. In 1994, he, together with Phil Masinga, moved to Leeds United. Radebe was merely part of the deal to keep Masinga happy overseas, but turned out to be the better investment for the club!

6. He became captain of Leeds in the 1998-99 season.

7. Despite reported interest from Manchester United, AC Milan and Roma, Lucas turned those deals down.

8. In 2000, he was awarded the FIFA Fair Play Award.

9. He retired at the end of the 2004/05 season and was given a testimonial match by Leeds, attracting a crowd over 37 800.

10. He played an integral role in helping South Africa land the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
