Shoes better than some of the world's best - Zwane

25 April 2015, 08:07Naledi Shange

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs' Arthur Zwane, known as 10111 on the soccer field, said his late team-mate John "Shoes" Moshoeu was a better soccer player than some of the world's best.

Comparing Moshoeu to international football legend Zinedine Zidane, Zwane said: "I don't think he came close to Shoes when it came to skill."

Zwane was speaking at Moshoeu's memorial service in Soweto, Johannesburg on Friday.

The football legend died on April 21 following a battle with cancer.

Zwane said he first saw Moshoeu play when he was 13-years-old and later had the privilege of playing alongside his hero.

"He changed my life," said Zwane, describing Moshoeu as a fallen hero.

Footballing star, Lucas Radebe said he too looked up to his late team-mate.

"Shoes is gone too soon," said Radebe, adding that he took with him skill and knowledge.

"For me, Shoes has finally retired and hung up his boots forever but we will never forget him."

Some of those attending the memorial service was Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula, Kaizer Chiefs' Siphiwe Tshabalala, SAFA president Danny Jordaan and former Bafana coach Clive Barker.
