British newspaper, the Daily Telegraph, released its list of the "Premier League's 100 greatest ever players" and former South Africa and Kaizer Chiefs defender Lucas Radebe made the cut.
Radebe, who was capped 70 times by the national team, was a fan favourite at Leeds United during his 11 years at the club.
"Rhoo" was named in the 78th position, beating the likes of Jay-Jay Okocha (93), Michael Ballack (95) and John Barnes (100).
This is how the British newspaper described Lucas Radebe:

If Nelson Mandela names you as a hero, you know you’ve made an impact. Radebe was indeed an icon on his native South Africa, and he was similarly beloved at Leeds, where he was a colossus at the heart of their defence. As captain, 'The Chief' helped Leeds regularly finish in the top four in the early 2000s, while he was also a tireless campaigner against racism.
