Last week, the sudden illness of Shoes dominated headlines as it was reported that the 49-year-old former Bafana Bafana international was at the Charlotte Maxeke Academic Hospital fighting for his life from an unknown illness.
Yesterday, the crew reported that Tovey, a former Bafana captain, was hospitalised after suffering three heart attacks. The 52-year is currently in intensive care in a hospital in Durban.
“These are two icons of the South African sporting fraternity and I will be praying for their speedy recovery,” said former Bafana number one goalie Andre Arendse.
“I’m praying for them and their families. I pray God heals them and strengthens their family. These two are the role models for all of us,” expressed former Bafana winger Helman “Midnight Express” Mkhalele.
“We still need these two stalwarts of South African football and I wish both of them a full and speedy recovery, get well soon my brothers!” Willem Jackson – former Bafana full-back.
“My inspirational leaders, my brothers I still regard you both my teammates long passed our playing days. The game still needs you, speedy recovery!” John “Dungi” Moeti- former Bafana midfielder.
