Veteran Kaizer Chiefs midfielder John 'Shoes' Moshoeu has been rewarded for his excellent form during the past season by picking up a number of awards at the Kaizer Chiefs awards ceremony on Tuesday.
Moshoeu pocketed a cool R75 000 and a Nissan X-Trail 4x4 for being named Player of the Season.
He also picked up a further R25 000 for winning five Player of the Month awards, as well as walking off with the Golden Boot award for his 11 strikes.
Shoes has been the driving force behind Chiefs' title-winning season and even earned a recall to the Bafana Bafana team at the age of 38 for the African Cup of Nations - quite a season for a player that is reported to have offered his services to the Chiefs management for free after they were unconvinced that he could still perform at his age.
Goal keeper Rowen Fernandez, whose excellent form was possibly one of the reasons that stalwart shot stopper Brian Baloyi was forced to leave the club, received the Most Improved Player of the season.
Jabulani Mendu, who did not have the best of times in his first season with Chiefs, did however score a couple of cracking goals and he was given the Goal of the Year prize for his superb effort against Dynamos in the Telkom Charity Cup.
Junior Khanye, whose emergence went a long way to making the absence of Jabu Pule less noticeable, won the Discovery of the Year award.
Defender Patrick Mabedi won the Fair Play Award and also shared the Players Player of the Year award with Tenashe Nengomashe.
