Lucas Radebe was born on 12 April 1969 in Diepkloof, Soweto, and lived there to the age of 15, when his parents sent him to what was known as “Bophutatswana’ because of the ongoing violence in their home area. He had always been a soccer fan and now began to play seriously for the ICL Birds in the Bophutatswana Soccer League, first as a goalkeeper and later in the midfield.
In 1989 he came to the notice of talent scouts for the Kaizer Chiefs club, and was promptly signed-up. An intelligent and acrobatic footballer, Radebe soon became one of the club’s star players, and in 1992 reached the pinnacle of his sporting career by being selected for the national South African soccer team, Bafana Bafana , in spite of having been shot in the back by an unknown assailant less than a year earlier.
