English Championship side Leeds United named appointed retired Ghana striker Anthony Yeboah as an ambassador.

Yeboah, 49, spent two seasons at Leeds from 1995-1997, scoring 32 goals in 66 games before joining Bundesliga side Hamburger.

“I can’t wait to see Leeds fans. I must take every advantage to see them. It’s been a long time. So I am very happy to see them,” Yeboah told BBC.

“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.

“Now I think we have to do something to help the team become top again because Leeds deserves to play in the Premier League.”

Yeboah put up 59 appearances for the Black Stars, scoring 29 goals between 1985 and 1997.
