JOHOR BARU: The Johor Football Association (JFA) will await the return of president Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim before deciding on their next course of action following the attacks on the Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) bus after their Super League match against Perak at the Perak Stadium in Ipoh on Tuesday.
An official from JFA said that Tunku Ismail “is currently overseas” and has yet to be briefed about the incident which occurred after the game, which JDT won 1-0.
“The bus ferrying the JDT players was vandalised with spray paint and then, after the match, the bus was pelted with stones ... resulting in one of the windows being broken,” said the official.
“The bus ferrying the JDT supporters was also pelted with stones while on its way out of the stadium compound.”
The official claimed that JFA will have to spend more than RM15,000 to repaint the bus and replace the broken window.
“We will take appropriate action, including lodging a report with the FA of Malaysia (FAM) once Tunku Ismail returns from overseas. We are just grateful that none of the players, team officials and fans sustained any serious injuries,” he said.
It is learnt that the Tunku Mahkota Johor is in Argentina for a polo tournament and is expected back on April 25.
Meanwhile, JDT Fan Club secretary Azman A. Jalil described the incident in Ipoh as “hell” for the Johor fans.
He claimed that the Perak fans had provoked the JDT fans via the social network.
“As we were making our way to the stadium, we could hear the Perak fans chanting ‘JDT will go back bloodied’ ... it was a torrid time for us there,” he said, adding that he would lodge a police report about the incident.
