The Premier Soccer League has fined Kaizer Chiefs R100,000 for fielding two ineligible players, Aiden McCarthy and Mduduzi Tshabala, in their DStv Premiership match against Sekhukhune United on December 12.
Chiefs triumphed 2-0 in their first game back following a Coivd-19 outbreak in the Amakhosi hamlet in Naturena, which forced them to boycott games against Cape Town City and Golden Arrows in early December.
Despite initially asking the league to postpone all of their December games and benching DStv Diski Challenge players McCarthy and Shabalala, the Chiefs resumed to action on December 12. Both, however, were not registered to play in the Premier Soccer League, and their appearance on the bench was considered a violation of PSL rules, even if they did not take the field.
On Friday, PSL prosecutor Zola Majavu said, "Kaizer Chiefs stood before a PSL DC earlier today, for fielding ineligible players McCarthy and Shabalala in a game between themselves and Sekhukhune."
