Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) have received a RM19,000 fine from the FAM after their fans misbehaviour during the clash against Perak, but there is still no news on the Larkin incident
The fines to JDT and Kelantan were handed down after Johor admitted that they were guilty of three of the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) charges, which were lighting flares, failure to provide adequate security as well as damaging the car of Perak team manager, Datuk Azhar Ahmad.
According to Bernama, the deputy chairman of the FAM’s disciplinary committee, Ednan Othman, stated that the committee will also call Argentinians Pablo Aimar and Luciano Figueroa soon over accusations that they were the victims of racially abusive words by Pahang defender Damion Stewart last month.
When asked regarding the incident that happened in the tunnel of Larkin Stadium, in the FA Cup tie between JDT and T-Team, Ednan informed the media that they have scheduled a hearing for next week.
The Larkin incident happened almost two months ago, and many sides, including Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin, have insisted that the FAM settle the issue quickly.
Recently, three state associations were also fined by the FAM for firing flares and inadequate security.
Kelantan have also been fined a total of RM15,000 for the wild behaviour of ther fians during the clash against Sime Darby. Fans reportedly burned flash cards and used abusive language, and the club have been accused of having laxe security during the game.
