Former Mamelodi Sundowns and Bafana Bafana footballer Anele Ngcongca have died in the early hours of Monday after a car accident in KwaZulu-Natal.
Ngcongca, 33, was reported to be on his way to join AmaZulu in Durban after agreeing on terms with the club on Friday for a one-year loan move, having called Kloorkop his home for the past four years after joining from Belgian side KRC Genk.
But according to reports, the Capetonian-born footballer lost control of his car, losing his life in the process.
Since joining the club in 2007, Ngcongca enjoyed a decorated career in Belgium where he won many trophies with Genk. But he also had a successful time after returning home.
Ngcongca won the Premiership title on three occasions with Sundowns, while he was also part of the squad that won the Caf Champions League in 2016.
Ngcongca was also Bafana Bafana’s No 1 right-back for many years.
In 2010, when South Africa hosted the World Cup, he featured in one game, playing against France during Bafana’s 2-1 win and went on to record 52 caps during his international career that spanned for almost a decade.
