Leeds gained automatic promotion from the Championship after West Brom lost to Huddersfield Town, giving Radebe’s former side a spot in the EPL for the 2020/2021 season, after 16 years in the second tier.

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane was the first to congratulate Leeds and Radebe for the club’s return to the EPL. A handful of South Africans who support Leeds because Radebe captained the side in the 90’s were also happy with the club’s return to the top tier.
