COVER STAR - Albert Johanneson
Albert Louis Johanneson was one of the first high-profile black players, of any nationality, to play top-flight football in England.He joined Leeds United in 1960 and played for the club for 10 years. He made history by becoming the first black person to feature in the world-renowned football competition the FA cup. A target for racial abuse, Albert Johanneson's confidence was sometimes undermined by the jibes of his opponents. In the words of footballing legend, George Best within whose era he played: "Albert was quite a brave man to actually go on the pitch in the first place, wasn't he? And he went out and did it. He had a lot of skill. A nice man as well. . .which is, I suppose, the more important thing, isn't it? More important than anything." Despite his achievements on the pitch, some thirty years later Albert Johanneson died of alcoholism, a forgotten man, in his Leeds high-rise flat in September 1995.
