Lucas Radebe and Ian Wright have shared an exchange on Twitter, looking back on some of the battles the former Leeds United skipper had with the Arsenal legend over the years.
Leeds was Radebe’s home for 11 years between 1994 and 2005, with the South African captaining the Whites to some of their best times in the modern-era.
Recently, Wright, who has now turned to punditry, caught up with Radebe and moved to share a host of images on his personal Twitter account of when he went toe-to-toe with the Leeds legend.

One showed Wright in his later days with Arsenal in the Premier League, whilst the other showed Radebe getting ahead of Wright for a ball, with the latter in the colours of West Ham after cutting ties with his beloved Gunners.
In response to that, Radebe shared the following message with Wright:
Great duals we had and that made me a better player and a person. Good memories legend.

Wright has been following Leeds United closely this season under the management of Marcelo Bielsa, paying a significant interest to how young loanee, Eddie Nketiah, did during the first-half of the season.
Nketiah was on loan at Elland Road until January, departing Leeds with five goals under his belt.
Wright has a lot of respect for Leeds as a club and particularly for someone like Radebe, who is a legend around Elland Road.
During the pair’s playing days, they went up against each other time after time, with the battles between Leeds and Arsenal in the late 90s having a real edge about them.
However, despite some needle, there’s a clear respect between Radebe and Wright, which is great to see.
