Radebe Jnr to Farsley Celtic

It was a proud day for Lucas Radebe Snr when his son Lucas Jnr signed with the English football club, Farsley Celtic. Radebe Snr played for the South African Bafana Bafana and was captain to Leeds United during his very successful career. Now it seems that his son has his eye set on the European football clubs too and is following in his dad’s footsteps. The young Radebe has been practising with his new team during the week, and it seems that he fits right in. Now he is keen on making his debut on the field, and he is hungry to create his successful career within the sport.

Radebe Senior’s Status

Lucas Radebe Snr became a legend during the latter half of the 1990s and the early 2000s for his dominance during defensive play. He started his career playing for the local South African team, Kaizer Chiefs in 1989. He stayed there until 1994. In 1994 he joined Leeds United and played for them for the next nine years until 2005. During 1992 to 2003 Radebe also played for the South African national team, Bafana Bafana. He made his debut on the national team during 1992 when the group clashed with Cameroon.

He also captained the South African national team during both the 1998 and the 2002 FIFA World Cups. Even though South Africa didn’t make it to the knockout stages, Radebe made it to the score sheet during 2002. He also fulfilled this leading position of captain at Leeds as well. During his career, Radebe was known as The Chief or Rhoo and was a much-loved figure from sports punters to football fans, both in his home country as well as globally. His most recognized fan is, however, the former president of South African, the Nelson Mandela, who stated that Radebe is his hero.

Radebe Junior’s Journey towards Success

Recently the younger Lucas was training at his father’s former club, Leeds. Now he was just signed by Farsley Celtic, a football club in the Vanarama National League Northside. Since signing with the club, the 20-year-old player has spent some time with his new team in the U23’s. Head coach to the side, Neil Ross, thanked his father for bringing him to them.

He also stated that the young player is keen to create his future in the world of football in the United Kingdom and that he is too hungry to make his first appearance for the club on the field. This will happen as soon as that his International Transfer Certificate has been received. Radebe Jnr has been training with the U23 team of the club during the past week, and it seems that he has impressed the club management with his skills and ability. His pace of playing seems to be fitting in excellent with the team dynamics. If all paperwork is completed in time, the youngster might be able to make his debut next weekend when Celtic is taking on Tadcaster Albion.
