Lucas Radebe is not only considered a legend and icon in South Africa, but in the Premier League too, and he was recently remembered for his heroics in goal against Manchester United. Did you see it?
The 48-year-old is still one of the game’s most recognisable faces, and whilst he will always be remembered for his classy defending and inch-perfect tackling, there is one game that stands out in Premier League history.
Who remembers his performance against United? It certainly wasn’t an ordinary display as it saw him pull on the goalkeeper’s shirt and gloves, and take to goal after Leeds United shot-stopper Mark Beeney saw red.
A virtuoso display of parried efforts to deny the likes of Ryan Giggs soon followed, and Lucas immediately gained legendary status within the league.
On Wednesday night, the Premier League took to Twitter to pay tribute to “Rhoo”.
