Radebe's career all but over 15/08/04

Leeds United skipper Lucas Radebe's career is in the balance after he suffered a suspected rupture of the Achilles tendon during the goalless draw at Wolves.

The 35-year-old former Bafana Bafana captain, who joined Leeds in 1994, was carried off on a stretcher after extended treatment on the pitch 18 minutes into the game at Molineux.

Leeds boss Kevin Blackwell gave a frank assessment of the injury, saying: "Lucas went down after 11 minutes and I have to tell you the prognosis is not good.

"The initial indication is that Lucas has suffered a rupture of the Achilles tendon and if that's true it means he's probably played his last game for Leeds United because he only had this year left on his contract.

"He's gone to hospital for more tests but it doesn't look good and it's such a shame because this is his testimonial year.

"Lucas was moving forward to play the ball and he felt what he thought was a kick and that's usually the tell-tale sign of the tendon snapping. That's why we fear the worst."
