Former Bafana Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs star midfielder John ‘Shoes’ Moshoeu is ill and fighting for his life at the Charlotte Maxeke Hospital in Johannesburg.

The Sunday Sun quoted Moshoeu’s mother, Reena, at the weekend as saying that the 49 year old "was admitted to the public hospital three weeks ago and is in a critical condition".

Reena said: "For the past few months he’s been going from one private hospital to another – until his medical aid got exhausted.

"He was brought into this hospital by Yvonne Chaka Chaka’s husband.

"He was supposed to be taken to theatre for an operation. But that hasn’t happened yet. My son hasn’t eaten anything in days," a worried Reena said.

"We’re still waiting for the doctors to tell us what’s wrong with him.

"We visited him and came back without talking to him because he’s in the high care facility of the hospital.

"We have faith that things will be fine after this operation."
