Kaizer Chiefs have pleaded guilty to fielding two ineligible players in their DStv Premiership clash against Sekhukhune United last December.

Aiden McCarthy and Mduduzi Shabalala, who have featured in Amakhosi's Diski Challenge team this season, were named substitutes for the senior league game against Sekhukhune.

Both players were found to not have been properly registered for the league campaign, and PSL prosecutor Zola Majavu handed down sanctions.

Chiefs were handed a fine of R200 000, half of which is suspended for 12 months, while both players were also handed fines.

Majavu said in a statement released by the PSL: "With regards to the second and third respondents, which are the players, they were both fined a monitory amount R10 000, which the whole amount is suspended for a period of 12 months on condition that during the period of suspension, they are not found guilty of the same offence.

"Kaizer Chiefs were further ordered to pay the cost of the two sittings, which cost would be administratively completed by the league and forwarded to the responded for onward payment."
