Now Cole - who scored 121 goals in 275 appearances for the Red Devils - has paid tribute to the former Bafana Bafana captain.
Cole described Radebe as "one of the toughest centre-backs to play against!"
The post on Instagram is proving to be popular among Cole's followers with several comments praising the retired duo.
Cole's Instagram post:
Radebe made over 250 appearances in all competitions for Leeds and represented the national team on 70 occasions with career highlights including: captaining the SA team at the 1998 and 2002 Soccer World Cups and being a member of the 1996 AFCON-winning side.
