With the South African football fraternity still reeling from the death of Richard Henyekane and Steve 'Kalamazoo' Mokone, another football servant in John 'Shoes' Moshoeu has passed on.
The former Kaizer Chiefs midfield maestro will always be remembered for his scintillating displays for Bafana Bafana during the 1996 African Cup of Nations, where South Africa were crowned African champions.
So fantastic was his form, Shoes netted four vitals goals in that tournament to become one of the key players in Clive Barker's squad.
Moshoeu loved football… He wasn't driven by money.
The player, who amassed 73 caps for Bafana Bafana, incredibly, played football well into his 40's. Even after retiring from the paid ranks, Shoes continued to play and coach at amateur level.
Who can forget his spectacular overhead kick goal against Ghana in the 1996 AFCON? His telepathic partnership with Doctor Khumalo? Or his darting runs into the opposition’s half?
You've left us with unforgettable memories; no one will ever fill your big 'Shooooes'… Heaven has signed a great footballer, rest in peace legend.
