Meet Andile Jali and his ex-wife Nonhle Ndala who is seven years older than Andile

Lucas Valeriu Radebe was able to support himself in South Africa by playing football at the professional level. The majority of his fame can be attributed to the fact that he was placed in the center of the defensive formation. When he originally began his career as a football player, he did so while playing for the Kaizer Chiefs football team. In 1994, he moved his allegiance to Leeds United Football Club. During his time as a student at Leeds, he took part in 256 different sports and competitions. As a consequence of the remarkable work he had done, people referred to him by an extremely broad range of names.


Lucas was appointed as the team captain for Leeds United, and he also led Bafana Bafana at the World Cup in 2002 while serving in that role for South Africa. According to the allegations made by the former President of South Africa, Radebe was overheard saying something to the effect of "This is my hero." In addition to that, for his entire time with the Chiefs, he held the position of captain of the team. The 12th of April, 1969 was the day he was brought into this world to make his debut. He was born and raised in the Deepsloet neighborhood of Soweto, and he resided there for the entirety of his life. When he was sixteen years old, his parents uprooted him and relocated the family out of Soweto and into Bophuthatswa because of the violence that was prevalent there.


In 2008, Feziwe Fsith Radebe, Lucas's wife, lost her brave and long-fought battle against cancer. She passed away in that year.


In 2015, he wed the wonderful woman who would become his wife, Thobela, in a ceremony that adhered to the traditions of their culture.


They were successful in having a cute and cuddly little boy together.


Lucan hung up his cleats and retired from playing football at the professional level in 2005. The following year, Leeds United hired him as a coach for the club. When Lucas was a great football player in South Africa, his countrymen held him in high esteem and showered him with love and admiration. They did this because Lucas was their countryman.
