The South African nation and football lovers have been thrown into mourning following the sudden and tragic death of footballer Anele Ngcongca.
The 33-year old former Mamelodi Sundowns right-back was involved in a fatal car crash in KwaZulu-Natal on Monday morning, November 23.
Rescue teams reportedly arrived at the scene shortly after the horrific crash but were unable to save Ngcongca. He was pronounced dead on the spot earlier this morning.
According to SA’s eNCA, a female companion who was in the car with him is in critical condition in hospital.
Anele Ngcongca made over 300 appearances at the highest levels of European football, turning out in the top flights of Belgium and France respectively. He won both the Belgian League and Cup with Genk during his nine-year stay with the club, as they made their first Champions League appearance in 2012.
Ngcongca was on the verge of being unveiled as an AmaZulu player and was already in Durban after a loan agreement with Sundowns. He had agreed on a one-year loan with a further option of making the move permanent next season.
The late footballer played for KRC Genk in Belgium and Troyes in France before returning to South Africa to join The Brazilians.
He also earned over 50 senior international caps with Bafana Bafana, including an appearance at the 2010 FIFA World Cup. I
Sadly, Ngcongca’s ex-girlfriend also passed away one week ago.
