Ngcongca in trouble once again

ANELE Ngcongca is in trouble with his Belgian club Racing Genk yet again for taking his time returning from a trip to South Africa.

Coach Mario Been said the Bafana Bafana right-back will have to explain his absence from the opening week of pre-season training. Ngcongca may also be fined.

The player has long exasperated his Belgian club with his tardiness in returning to duty from trips home to Guguletu in the Western Cape.

This time he had problems trying to get a visa for his partner and child to join him, and this administrative issue could be a legitimate excuse.

Ngcongca has had hardly any holiday time after being on Bafana duty for three successive weeks after the end of the last season.

Genk said they were expecting him back either this morning or tomorrow. The club are in neighbouring Holland for a training camp.

Last November Been dropped Ngcongca for the league match after he sneaked in a few days at home instead of going back to Genk to train. All was forgiven ahead of a Uefa Champions League match against Valencia.
