The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) has hit Johor Darul Takzim (JDT) and Kelantan FA with fines after they were found guilty on charges of fan misbehaviour.

JDT were slapped with a RM19,000 fine for their fans lighting flares, damaging the car of Perak FA team manager Datuk Azhar Ahmad as well as their failure to provide adequate security in a recent Malaysia Super League (MSL) game.

Bernama also reported that JDT's Argentinian stars Pablo Aimar and Luciano Figueroa will be called up by FAM's disciplinary committee soon after they accused Pahang FA defender Damion Stewart of racially abusing them. Committee chairman Ednan Othman also indicated that a hearing has been scheduled for next week about the FA Cup tie incident between JDT and T-Team in Larkin two months ago.

Meanwhile, Kelantan received a RM15,000 punishment after fans reportedly burned flash cards and used abusive language in a recent match against Sime Darby. The Red Warriors were also found guilty of not providing adequate security.

The FAM had recently fined the associations of Pahang, Selangor, Perak and Terengganu a total of RM75,000 for crowd trouble.
