Lucas Radebe at Elland Road

Leeds United legend Lucas Radebe is clearly still the 'The Chief' at Elland Road as he received a rapturous welcome at his old stomping ground. 

Dressed in a grey suit and a navy cap, the Leeds United cult hero stepped out of the tunnel to embrace the love from the Leeds United faithful. 

Having made over 200 appearances for the club, Radebe still holds a strong legacy at the West Yorkshire club and his recent visit is a testament to how the rowdy Leeds supporters feel about legendary South African defender.

Here's a clip of Radebe walking out onto Elland Road: 

Prior to his match-day appearance at Elland Road over the weekend, Radebe made an appearance as an analyst on Premier League TV during Leeds 1-0 defeat to Chelsea a little over a week ago.

He shared the studio with host Steve Bower and Premier League legends Shay Given and Alan Shearer. 

Radebe receives new drip

Yorkshire brand Aime Dieu Original clothing is a streetwear brand owned by a Leeds fan, Sohail Rashid, and he headed to his favourite team's home ground to present a gift to Radebe. 

Rashid gave the Bafana legend a few items from Aime Dieu, with one of them appearing to be the same hoodie that was worn by Rashid himself:

Aime Dieu has been sported by legendary former Real Madrid and Spain goalkeeper, Iker Casillas and former Brazil and Arsenal midfielder, Gilberto Silva. 

They've also collaborated with Leeds United for a range of hoodies, and they were also worn by Brazilian winger, Raphinha.
