Tony - Tony Yeboah - Tony Yeboah - Tony Yebo-o-ah! The chant that
rang around the grounds of England for two great years. The big
Ghanaian joined Leeds from Eintracht Frankfurt for £3.4 million
at the start of 1995 and soon got about the business of terrorising
opposition defences. At the start of 1995-96, he had more or less
wrapped up the goal of the season competition with a cracking 25-yard
volley against Liverpool, and several other world-class goals showed
us what a gem we'd got. A hat-trick in Monaco in the UEFA Cup proved
it again. Unfortunately, that proved to be the high spot. Injuries -
several picked up while on international duty - restricted his game
when he played and kept him out of the side on too many occasions. And
when George Graham took over, the dour Scotsman couldn't put up with
the fact that he wasn't the biggest man in the club, so Yeboah had to
go. He returned to Germany and was still playing and scoring for
several years after that.
Robby Mitchell says: Tony was an excellent player and it's a pity
that he didn't stay in the league for longer.
Sukhjit Singh says: I worked with Antony Yeboah's cousin, Glenn
Yeboah. This was for Work Experience at Somerfields, Leicester.
Peter Ellis says: Tony Yeboah is a legend and should be remembered
at Elland Road for many years to come. He was amazing when he was at
Leeds. It is worth paying just to see the man play. LONG LIVE TONY

Jonty Rees says: Did you know that his nephew, Freddy Adu, is a
13yr old phenom in the US. Plays for the US U17 National team, and is

Cups to come.

Aussie Football fan says: There was one goal Tony scored that
matched - even surpassed that classic volley against Liverpool. It was
against Wimbledon in the same year I think (It was No. 1 of the Top 10
goals in the Premier League that season)and a very similar goal in the
fact that it hit the underside of the crossbar before it went in -
except he juggled the ball past 2 defenders before he took the shot(I
remember Leeds won the game 4-2) It was THE best goal I have ever seen
and probably will see and a memory that will stay in my mind for the
rest of my days. Brilliant stuff

dan fillingham says: Tony Yeboah is a great idol to young children
all around the world and i think his thunderous bar and ins against
Wimbledon and Liverpool were the goals of the century, and 1 last
thing TONY YEBOAH FOR EVER
Victor Bonsu-Prempeh says: I remember that shimmering star;muscled
and sweaty with unpredictable aura. His moves whilst with the ball is
like concord in the sky and the satisfaction emanating from his goals
is like honey nectar downed in your throat. The goal against Ivorian
team during the African cup of nations in South African is my most
memorable goal of him. He is the best goal scorer Africa had ever
produced.Tony, I am in the U.S and Also a student at Connecticut. I
hope to see you thrive forever .
shane parry says: wot a legend
Tom from York says: Tony Yeboah has got to have been the ULTIMATE
player ever!!! Through his years at Leeds he must have had the BEST
goal ever scored in football history where he was over 30 yards out
and he hit the under side of the crossbar and it then went in. Its
all Howard Wilkinson's fault he left. What ever happened to Tony?
Jabba says: Tony left when George Graham was manager, not Wilko.
Dave Duff says: Tony Yeboah! what a class player he was!! Best goal

Fred A says: Remember watching the Monaco Yeboah hat-trick game:
happened to around at my parents neighbours in France at the time and
remember telling them before the game that Yeboah would win the match
for us. Lo and behold, though can't really remember much detail tho
seem to recall there was an overhead kick involved. French TV did an
v amusing pre-match chalkboard analysis of the team game plans,
Monaco's involving a million dots and arrows going in no discernable
direction, Leeds' consisting of 3 dots and 2 arrows going from goal to
midfield to goal! :-) Those were the days!

Ghanaman says: Tony Yeboah payed his dues to Eintrantcht Frankfurt
