Ghana legend Tony Yeboah has been unveiled as the newest ambassador for English second-tier side Leeds United.

The former Ghana international is hugely regarded as a cult hero following an impressive time at Elland Road.

The Ghanaian was signed from Eintracht Frankfurt in 1995 in a deal worth around ?3.4 million, according to The Independent.

He was only with the club for two seasons before falling foul of George Graham and being shipped off to Hamburg but he made quite an impact.

He scored 32 goals in 66 league games for the club but it was for other reasons he was a cult hero.

His stunning goals against Liverpool and Wimbledon and his love for Yorkshire Puddings among.

The Ghanaian was on Thursday unveiled as the latest new ambassador for the Leeds United Foundation and spoke to BBC Radio Leeds about his time at Leeds and his hope for the future for the club.

?I can?t wait to see them (Leeds fans). I must take every advantage to see them, it?s been a long time. So I am very happy to see them,? he told BBC Radio Leeds

?It?s fantastic. I am very happy that I scored those two goals that people now always remember me. You know it is magnificent. Something like that, you can?t forget it.

?I was so proud to score against Liverpool and the Leeds fans were so happy. I am so proud of myself.
