Leeds hero Lucas Radebe celebrates 3-0 win over Fulham with Twitter message

Leeds United thrashed Fulham 3-0 at Craven Cottage tonight.

Leeds United swept to a third win in the last four games with a convincing 3-0 win over Fulham - and club hero Lucas Radebe celebrated the victory on Twitter.

Neil Redfearn's men went into the game having drawn with Nottingham Forest on Saturday, and were keen to beat struggling Fulham tonight - especially given that ex-Leeds strikers Ross McCormack and Matt Smith were lining up for the Cottagers.

Three points is what Leeds wanted, and that's just what they got with a comfortable victory in West London, taking them up to 11th place in the Championship table.

Goals from Sam Byram, Sol Bamba and Mirco Antenucci handed Leeds a convincing victory, and fans in London, back in Yorkshire and all over the world celebrated a fourth straight game without defeat.

They were joined in the celebrations by former Leeds defender Lucas Radebe, who remains a cult hero at Elland Road for his displays in the Premier League.

The South African, who joined from Kaizer Chiefs back in 1994, played 200 league games for the club and clearly remains interested in Leeds' fortunes after tweeting his celebrations tonight, as seen below.

With Redfearn at the helm, Leeds are moving in the right direction - and should he stay in the long term, we may be seeing more celebrations from Radebe and other ex-Leeds players in the future.
