Following the news that Kaizer Chief legend John ‘Shoes’ Moshoeu is battling with illness in hospital, the Fan Park crew will take this moment to wish the former Bafana Bafana and Amakhosi hero a speedy recovery!
Moshoeu enjoyed spells at Giant Blackpool and Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs before signing for Turkish club Genclerbirligi in 1993. He later had spells at Kocaelispor, Bursasporm and Fenerbahce, where he became a fan favourite amongst the supporters.
Shoes, at the age of 37 once again found himself thrilling Amakhosi fans in a Chiefs jersey as he returned to the club from a successful spell abroad. He called it quits on his professional career in 2008 after a short stay with AmaZulu.
As the owner of Alexandra United FC, Shoes continued to play in the lower leagues of South African football with his club into his early fifties.
Shoes had a wonderful football career and still has much to offer on the local scene. Send your well wishes to Shoes and his family bellow.
