FAZ General Secretary Adrian Kashala told FAZ media that the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has taken the drastic step to keep players and officials in check. Kashala says the footage viewed and regulatory reports for the match show some Nkana players and officials attacking match officials and a ball boy.
“We do not condone hooliganism at any level in the game and we will deal with it decisively. The suspension will remain in effect until the disciplinary process has been exhausted,” he said.
“Violence at any level in the game must be weeded out. Some of the aggressive activities in the footage border on matters beyond football. Football is a rule-based game, and everyone involved must at all times embrace fair play and respect the rules.”
Nkana has been given up to Thursday, May 13th, 2021 to submit the names of the culprits as part of the disciplinary process.
Nkana are bottom of the table with just 3 points after playing seven games so far.
