Sports Kalu, Wedson and Mbesuma pays tribute to "Shoes" Moshoeu

FAZ president and soccer icon Kalusha Bwalya has paid tribute to former Bafana Bafana captain John “Shoes” Moshoeu who died on Tuesday.

Shoes died at the age of 49 after battling stomach cancer.

The ex-Kaiser Chiefs and Fenerbahce midfielder is remembered for starring in South Africa’s 1996 Africa Cup-winning team.

“Really sad to hear the passing on of John “Shoes” Moshoeu, a true legend. My colleague and my team-mate,” Kalusha stated.

Ex-Zambia international Wedson Nyirenda who shared the same dressing-room with Shoes at Chiefs in the early 1990’s described the deceased as a soccer icon.

“We have lost yet another soccer icon in South Africa. When I came at to Kaiser Chiefs you received me. A very down to earth gentleman with great skills,” Nyirenda wrote on his facebook page.

Striker Collins Mbesuma played with Shoes at Chiefs from 2004 to 2005.

“My heart is shattered by his death. We have lost a legend among legends. When I first arrived at Chiefs John Shoes Moshoeu welcomed me with much respect,” Mbesuma said.

Moshoeu won 73 caps before retiring at the age of 42.


  1. Go to Kamwala Trading center in Lsk.. there are small Zambian boys as young as 6yrs old dressed in muslim attire working for old fat Indians in some shops!!! What are those small children doing working or hanging out with old asian men in their shops??

      Sad to lose a legend like Shoe, but such is life. It is appointed for man to live and then die, may God console family and friends

  2. I hate death! It is too selective! Strength to the bereaved family. I enjoyed watching john’s style of playing football.
