RIP Emmanuel 'Scara' Ngobese

‘Scara’, as he was known to his hoardes of fans, passed away this morning after a long battle with TB.

Ngobese’s brother, Thabani, confirmed on Metro FM the passing of the former Moroka Swallows, AmaZulu and Thanda Royal Zulu midfielder.

Richard Makhoba, manager of United FC where Scara was last in action, said his club was saddened by Ngobese’s death.

“We are saddened about the news of Scara passing away. This is a great loss to South Africa football and we will miss his immense talent. We wish to pass our condolences to his family during this dark hour.”
