The 25-year-old has continued where he left off from his debut season in Europe, where he walked away with the Proximus League Player of the Year award - with two goals in his first four league games with Club Brugge.
And Ngcongca has shed insight about how highly-rated the Bafana Bafana star is to his current head coach Philippe Clement.
"For Percy, things have been going so good for him since he joined the Blue Army, everything he touches turns to gold," Ngcongca tells KickOff.com.
"He is enjoying himself in Belgium the coach likes him and one thing people maybe didn’t know is that the coach Philippe Clement he was coaching KRC Genk last season and he wanted him there.
"I got a call from the Technical Director of Genk saying I must speak to Percy to come on loan to Genk but the coach left for Brugge then he acted quickly to get him. That shows that he had confidence in him and likes him."
