FAS’ Reply To Media Query On Assault On Referee
The Football Association of Singapore has a responsibility to protect our registered referees and we do not condone such acts, regardless of who commits them – players, team officials or even members of the public. Mr Asadullah, the referee in question, is doing fine now and is still accepting appointments to continue his passion in refereeing. We are delighted to have committed individuals like him to be our referees.
While we have had cases of referees being verbally abused or threatened during or after matches, none have ever escalated to an actual physical assault.
