FAS statement on viral video
The player in the video had become emotional in the heat of the moment after Singapore’s 1-3 loss to Malaysia in their final AFF Suzuki Cup Group B match.
His teammates and FAS backroom staff reacted quickly and did their best to calm him down. We thank them for their decisive actions, and for helping their teammate in distress.
We have since counselled the player and he has apologised for his actions.
The FAS also wants to apologise to all fans who may have been offended by the video. We seek their understanding, and we thank them for their passionate support last Saturday night.
