Radebe was speaking on the sidelines of the Bafana class of 1996 being inducted into Sun International/Samsung South African Hall of Fame at Sun City in Rustenburg on Sunday night.

“We were all leaders in the team because we knew what we wanted to achieve and were willing to fight for it,” said Radebe.

The 48-year-old former Bafana captain also revealed that he would welcome a chance to coach at any team but under certain conditions.

“There is lot that goes into being a coach and the most important is the set-up in the team. When we won the Afcon everyone was pulling in the same direction.

“If the conditions are good for me to succeed as a coach I would take the chance,” he said.
