Johannesburg - Jeffery Ntuka, the Supersport United player who was caught speeding on Sunday, pleaded guilty in the Vanderbijlpark Magistrate's Court, reports the Sowetan.
Ntuka paid a R4 000 admission-of-guilt fine on Monday.
The 26-year-old defender was caught speeding at 188kmh on the N1.

Ntuka has played for the national Under-23 side and Bafana Bafana.
