Former Black Stars and Leeds United striker Anthony ‘Tony’ Yeboah, has been unveiled as an ambassador for the Yorkshire based club.

Yeboah played two seasons for the club from 1995-1997, scoring 32 goals in 66 games; but he’s mostly remembered for a couple of crazy volleys he scored against AFC Wimbledon and Liverpool.

Despite then being moved on to Hamburg after just those two seasons, he made enough of an impact to be named an ambassador of the club now. The appointment comes as the club struggles in the lower rungs of English football; striving to return to those storied days of old.

The Ghanaian agrees that is a top priority.

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

“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.”
