Shoes Moshoeu has passed away

Former Bafana Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs midfield maestro John “Shoes” Moshoes has passed away at the age of 49.

Moshoeu’s former agent and friend Glyn Binkin confirmed to Phakaaathi that the legendary midfielder, who won the African Cup of Nations with Bafana in 1996, succumbed to his battle with cancer this afternoon.

“Yes, I can confirm that Shoes has passed away. He died at hospital this afternoon,” said Binkin.

“This is a sad day for the Class of 1996 especially because some of them are still alive. It’s also a sad day not only for the South African, but for the African and world football at large.

“Shoes will be sorely missed and our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and of course the football fraternity at large.”

Phakaaathi would also like to send condolences to the Moshoeu family and friends.

It is indeed a sad moment for the South African football and may his soul rest in peace.
