“Yeboah was simply good back then. I played against him in several games during my active days in England and I tell you what he always gave me a reason to follow Ghana Football” he is quoted by StarrFmOnline.

“I remember I conceded a goal against Yeboah back in 1995 in the FA cup and I still remember it very well. That goal was unbelievable.”

“As a goalkeeper, I felt bad after that game but later when I watched the highlight on Television I gave him credit for doing a great job in that match and henceforth I started to pay attention to players who come from Africa especially Ghana,” David James added.

“I have played against a lot of quality strikers as a goalkeeper. But Tony Yeboah was exemplary. His days at Leeds United was amazing. And I think he was matchless Yeboah joined Leeds United from Eintracht Frankfurt for £3.4 million in January 1995, scoring 32 goals in over 60 appearances and winning the player of the year award in 1996”.
