The erstwhile Leeds United man shares his thoughts on his Ghana record being levelled by the Crystal Palace forward
Comparisons between the now 53-year-old and compatriot Jordan Ayew have emerged after the latter netted a match-winner for Crystal Palace in a clash with Watford on Saturday to go level on goals with the former.
While both men have 24 goals to their names, Yeboah achieved the feat in only 47 matches. Ayew, on the other hand, made his 128th appearance in Saturday’s 1-0 triumph.
“If you compare my games to Jordan’s, it tells you I had fewer games. I played 47 matches, scoring 24 goals in two and half years for Leeds United,” Yeboah told Angel FM.
“[The English Premier League] is not a small league but Jordan scoring 24 goals means that the future is bright for him despite playing more matches than me.
“Looking at his age, he can add more goals if he continues to play in the Premier League.
“But for now, if you compare my statistics with him, you can see some sort of differences between us.”
Yeboah spent two years on the books of then-Premier League outfit Leeds, from 1995 to 1997.
