Leeds United reacted to a tweet from their former defender Lucas Radebe, who was showing off his craftmanship.

The South African defender played for United over an 11-year spell in Yorkshire which saw him rack up 197 appearances for the club in the alone.

Radebe shared a picture of him holding up some Leeds embroidery which depicted the club’s emblem.

Leeds face tough opposition on Monday night as they travel to London to face in-form West Ham United, who are battling it out for a place in the top four.
