Mamelodi Sundowns defender Anele Ngcongca says he had an offer from Kaizer Chiefs before he joined Sundown upon his return from Belgium. Ngcongca also explained why he decided to leave top Belgian club KRC Genk.

“Yes, I did speak to Chiefs, I spoke to Bobby Motaung, but I went for a much better offer. I’m really sorry if I let Chiefs down, but football is a business, you know,” Ngcongca reportedly told City Press.

Ngcongca revealed that he left the club because he felt former coach Peter Maes was disrespectful. He said the biggest issue was racism.

"Racism is there, it is alive and we cannot hide it. I experienced it first hand from my coach at Genk, Peter Maes," Ngcongca said.

He said the incident that got him upset was when he was badly kicked badly on his ankle in a friendly game and Maes said he “thought Africans were very strong.” Ngcongca said that fallout with Maes was the biggest story in the Belgian media.

He said the club was giving him good money and thoughts of him staying at the club at them time, crossed his mind but he finally decided to leave because of the disrespect and attitude from the the coach towards him.

DO YOU THINK NGCONGCA WOULD HAVE BEEN A GOOD SIGNING FOR AMAKHOSI?
