Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek today urged the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) to investigate the fracas during the Felda United-Negeri Sembilan Super League match at the Tuanku Abdul Rahman Stadium in Paroi on Saturday.
Shabery Cheek who was disappointed with the incident said such an incident should not have happened in the local league.
"We must take the best possible action to ensure similar incidents did not take place in the future," he told reporters here after accompanying Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein who visited a Simulation Shooting System Centre at the Bukit Kiara Rakan Muda Complex here.
During the incident, referee Azman Jamaludin gave the marching orders to S. Kunalan from Negeri Sembilan and Farid Ramli, Mohd Hardi Jaafar from Felda United, for their involvement in a fracas.
Negeri Sembilan won the match 1-0 through Shahurain Abu Samah's solitary goal in the 53rd minute.
Shabery Cheek said such an incident would not have happened if the players and team management of both teams had behaved professionally and not just follow their emotions.
