Tony Yeboah

Where is Tony Yeboah now?

Regarded by many as one of the most clinical finishers in Premier League history and adored at Leeds United, Tony Yeboah finished his career in Qatar playing for Al-Ittihad in 2003.

When Yeboah joined German side 1. FC Saarbrucken in 1988 he was one of the first black players to feature in the Bundesliga.

He enjoyed much success during his time in Germany and was the first African player to win the Bundesliga’s Golden Boot award on two seperate occasions during his time playing for Eintracht Frankfurt.

In retirement, Yeboah returned to Ghana and spent time as chairman of Berekum Chelsea who play in the Ghana Premier League,

He is now a successful businessman and owns a couple of hotels in his homeland called Yegoala which is his nickname.

Yeboah also runs an international sports agency called Anthony Yeboah Sport Promotion where he helps African sportsmen to breakthough into Europe.

As part of the Premier League’s 25th anniversary in 2017, Yeboah’s goal against Liverpool in 1995 was voted the league’s second greatest ever goal after Dennis Bergkamp’s against Newcastle United.
