Scara's 360 Degrees Turn Brought Fans To Their Feet...
'Scara' Ngobese, a name that rings a bell amongst the Kaizer Chiefs faithful, as they remember him as one of the most skilful players to have played in the South African football community.
It was in the township of Katlehong, that Scara learned how to play the game on dusty pitches and honed the skills that would later turn him into a South African football darling.
He joined Kaizer Chiefs’ development academy, where he linked up with the likes of Jabu Mahlangu and Gerald Sibeko. However, Scara plied his trade at various clubs.
After his debut for Moroka Swallows in July 1999, he played for Hellenic, Tembisa Classic and Zulu Royals. For the first few years of his career, it seemed that he was destined to be more than a freestyle footballer. His show-me-your-numbers and his famous ‘360 degrees turn’ could bring fans to their feet, but goals are what win games.
Returning to his boyhood club, the boy from Katlehong was given an opportunity to leave a legacy on the highest level of local football. Oh, boy, did he grab it and run with it...
South Africa was heartbroken to wake up to the sad news of his demise on 11 May 2010, as a result of tuberculosis, just days before the start of the 2010 World Cup. It was a tragedy, but Ngobese’s spirit in the annals of Kaizer Chiefs’ history will live on forever and the South African football lovers will always remember his skills on the pitch.
Rest In Peace, 'Black Jesus'.
