Johor FA president urges calm among football fans

JOHOR BARU: Johor FA president Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim has advised football fans to stop fighting among each other “as no good will come out of it”.

He said that it was more important for fans to give their full support towards their teams.

The Tengku Mahkota of Johor also urged all football fans to stay united for the benefit of the game.

“There will be no end to this (fighting) if fans continue to provoke, insult and humiliate each other ... such action has no benefit at all,” he said in a statement through the Southern Tigers official website.

He also congratulated Pahang for their hard-fought 3-2 Super League win over JDT at the Darul Makmur Stadium in Kuantan on Friday and urged his players to work even harder in the coming matches.

“To the Johor fans as well as those from other state teams, I congratulate you for keeping your discipline and behaviour during matches.

“However, to the Johor fans or other supporters who created trouble during or after the game, I condemn such acts and urge that proper action be taken against them,” he said.

The match between JDT and Pahang was marred when both sets of fans provoked each other after the game and the bus ferrying the JDT fans was pelted with stones.
