TBT: When Ngcongca And De Bruyne Ruled Belgium With Genk

He is one of the biggest stars of the modern era, but before Kevin De Bruyne was a megastar for Manchester City, he was dominating the Belgian Pro league with Mamelodi Sundowns’ Anele Ngcongca.

It was De Bruyne’s penalty on Wednesday evening that ensured victory for City over Real Madrid in the first leg of the UEFA round of 16 clash, as the midfielder continues to prove integral in Pep Guardiola’s team.

Many would have forgotten that the Belgian partnered up with former Bafana Bafana defender Ngcongca during his seven-year stay with Racing Genk in the Belgian top flight.

The duo struck up quite a friendship and together they won the Belgian Championship in the 2010/11 season.

Ngcongca who is currently out in Egypt with his Sundowns side is proud of the success that De Bruyne has achieved and uses every opportunity to shower him with praise on his Instagram account.
