This Iconic Kaizer Chiefs would've turned 55 years old today as he was born on the 18th of December in 1965.
This star was part of the iconic and only South African national team to squad to have won the AFCON in 1996 and he left behind a shiny career.
He sadly passed way on the 21st of Apri in 2015 after a long battle with stomach cancer at the age of 50 as he was admitted to Charlotte Maxeke hospital shortly before his death.
John Shoes Moshoeu was not only a legend for Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana, he also did his fair share of globe trotting and is respected up u til this days in countries like Turkey where he played for a long time.
Shoes was retired at the time of his death however football list a great deal of talent as he still had loads of knowledge and experience to contribute either as an analyst, scout or coach.
It is our duty as football lovers to make sure that the memory of players like Shoes, Gift Leremi, Leslie Manyathela and Scara Ngobese to name a few are credited and remembered for their contributions to the beautiful game.
John Shoes Moshoeu was a legend on par with some of the world's greatest like Zinedine Zidane and Luis Figo during his time and he deserves the same tributes as the likes Diego Maradonna.
