The president of the South African Football Association (SAFA), Danny Jordaan has wished former Bafana Bafana stars John ‘Shoes’ Moshoeu and former captain Neil Tovey a speedy recovery.

The two former Bafana Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs legends are in hospital battling different ailments and Jordaan said he was joining the rest of the country in praying for the two to get well soon.

Moshoeu has been admitted to Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg Academic Hospital in Parktown while Tovey was admitted to Umhlanga Hospital yesterday following multiple heart-attacks.

In a statement SAFA said that they had heard that both were responding well to medication.

The 49-year old Moshoeu and 52-year old Tovey were an integral part of the Class of ’96 which won the Africa Cup of Nations tournament hosted by South Africa in 1996.

“The two are some of the most outstanding legends this country will ever see. They brought us the Africa Cup of Nations trophy and that legacy will live with us forever. They have also been actively involved in football in various capacities since their retirement, ploughing back into society what they used to do best. On behalf of the South African football fraternity, I would like to wish the two speedy recovery,” said Jordaan.

The SAFA President said it was very sad that the two stalwarts were unwell but was hopeful that typical of their tenacious characters, would wade off these setbacks and get back on their feet again.
