Leeds United was one of the best clubs in the English Premier League a decade ago, starring legends such as Tony Yeboah.

Now the Ghanaian great will be honoured as an ambassador of the club, who are currently in the English Championship division.

Yeboah represented Leeds from 1995 to 1997 where he scored 32 goals in 66 games and then moved to Bundesliga side Hamburger.

“I can’t wait to see Leeds fans. I must take every advantage to see them. It’s been a long time. So I am very happy to see them,” Yeboah told BBC.

“It’s fantastic. I am very happy that I scored those two goals that people now always remember me. You know it is magnificent. Something like that, you can’t forget it.

“I was so proud to score against Liverpool and the Leeds fans were so happy. I am so proud of myself.

“Now I think we have to do something to help the team become top again because Leeds deserves to play in the Premier League.”

Yeboah is now 49-years-old and stopped playing for Ghana back in 1997.
