Technical Director of Lagos Junior League, Tunde Disu, has frowned at the fracas,Â which marredÂ a match involving the Ikosi-Isheri team and Ikorodu West on Sunday atÂ the FIFA Legacy football pitch, Surulere, Lagos, Nigeria.
The Ikosi-Isheri football fans, who came to cheer their team to victory invaded theÂ pitch when some officials clashed during the encounter.
Trouble started after Ikorodu West scored a goal before the end of regulation time.
This ugly incident resulted in a stampede, which was seen as a bad omen and whatÂ could derail the smooth running of Lagos Junior League.
Disu, who is sad about the unfortunate incident, disclosed to P.M.Sports thatÂ members ofÂ the disciplinary committee are not happy about the incident and wouldÂ take an appropriate action when the chairman, who travelled returns.
â€œWe wonâ€™t condone any act of hooliganism from any team. Itâ€™s unfortunate that thisÂ incident occurred when we are trying to canvass for wide publicity for the LagosÂ Junior League. I want to assure the participants that the culprits would be broughtÂ to book as soon as the accordingly,â€ he said.
P.M.Sports, however, gathered there was no soccer hooliganism at the Onikan StadiumÂ as Ejigbo lost 1-2 to Oshodi in another pulsating encounter.
