The Youth and Sports Minister, Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek, has urged Kelantan Football Association (KAFA) and Johor Football Association to settle any ongoing issues between them.
Ahmad Shabery wants any controversy between Kelantan and Johor Darul Takzim to be end quickly as it can ruin the faith of our supporters towards football.
According to Utusan, he said "Controversies are good. But, these non-stop controversies can make people start losing their faith towards the sports. I am looking at this very seriously. This thing should not happen and the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) must take this thing seriously."
Not picking on any side, Ahmad also added "Procteting players and the crowd is an action that must be done by the host, and the visitors need not bring an army just to protect your team."
Ahmad Shabery wants this matter to be resolved as soon as possible as it can ruin the country's image in the footballing world.
