After Howard Wilkinson paid Eintracht Frankfurt just £3.4 million for Yeboah, the Ghanaian international’s Leeds career began slowly due to lack of fitness — but he wasted little time in proving that shooting, not running, was his strongest suit.
Twelve league goals from 16 starts helped Leeds into a UEFA Cup berth but the following campaign was even more spectacular.
Stunners against Liverpool at Elland Road and another from distance at Wimbledon won him consecutive Goal Of The Month awards; the former also scooped Goal Of The Season, before a hat trick in Monaco made him the toast of Europe.
Sadly, it didn’t last. He got injured in March 1996 and never regained his form or place.
Strange but true: Yeboah marked his last appearance in a Leeds shirt by throwing it at the bench when substituted by George Graham at White Hart Lane.
