Radebe plans big send-off
Lucas Radebe
Radebe's career has been plagued by injury
Defender Lucas Radebe plans to use his testimonial in the summer as an emotional goodbye to the Leeds fans.

The Football Association recently confirmed Radebe is eligible for a testimonial - the first non-EU player to be awarded such a honour.

Radebe, who is recovering from an Achilles injury, told the Leeds website: "It's a great honour for me.

"It might be the best way to say goodbye to everyone who has supported me over the years."

Radebe added: "Leeds is my second home now and I am grateful this decision has been made and we can crack on with the work."

"I hope there is a big crowd, I have had a great time here because people have been so good to me.

The South African defender also insisted he would have recovered from the injury in time to play in the closing stages of the season.

"I will be fit and then hopefully I will also be able to finish off a few games for the club in the Championship.

"That's how I want to finish - just before my testimonial."
