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 YEBOAH!
Bob McCalmont says: Tony was a great player we miss him.

celebrated the day Yeboah joined our club. He was one of the

superior. I will always carry his name in the web, combined with
his final jersey number in Hamburg

trick in monaco are tales i can tell my grandchildren about quite
simply a god
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 scoring many goals against full pro teams from the MLS in
practice games? Watch this kid - he could lead the US to great
things in World Cups to come.
sean says: where is he now ?
Matt says: Tony was my favorite player for Eintracht Frankfurt
and it was really sad to see him go (another manager Jupp Heynckes

monday evening against liverpool to witness the best goal ive ever

him and i always will, remember a **star** for the future freddie
adu(yeboah 2) his nephew..... wow i wish he was me!!!!
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
Melon Terrence says: I once met Tony and he told me that
football was like a drug to him. I love Tony Yeboah and rumour has
it Freddy Adu (the young prodigy) is his nephew!

Attakora Yeboah says: He is simply the best.he is my uncle
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 ever for me against Liverpool when i was younger ( and im a
Liverpool fan ). Only a 1 season wonder but would have been a

the Crossbars ;)

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
Kingsley Addai-Boateng says: He was one of the best and I'm
absolutely surprised he was not included in Pele's best 125 living

liverpool as a screensaver because it would be awesome.

someone that will pop up and bag you a wonder goal out of nowhere.

Ghanaman says: Tony Yeboah payed his dues to Eintrantcht
Frankfurt and Leeds but when it came done to the National Team
ghanaians had to get down on their knees to see him perform. Watch
out for Isaac Boakye of Aminia Bielifield who is following in his
footsteps...arrogant but delivers.
Carl O'Gorman says: Tony Yeboah was my favourite player when I
was growing up. It's a shame Leeds United didn't keep him for
