Tony Yeboah ready for his Leeds United homecoming


Footballing nostalgia will be on the menu this weekend when Leeds United hero Tony Yeboah makes his long-awaited return to Elland Road.

Yeboah is appearing at an ‘audience with’ style event at the ground’s Centenary Pavilion tomorrow evening.

The night will feature an interview, questions from the floor and big screen clips of the Ghanaian star’s finest moments in a Leeds shirt.

Organisers at MJK Sports Events have also made sure the meal for the evening includes Yorkshire puddings, the local delicacy he fell in love with during his time at United.

Yeboah, now aged 49, earned cult status with United’s fans after signing for £3.4m from Eintracht Frankfurt in 1995.

He scored 32 times in 66 appearances for the Whites and his long-range strikes against Liverpool and Wimbledon have gone down in club folklore.

The forward also notched a stunning hat-trick in a UEFA Cup game in Monaco.
