Indian Super League team FC Goa have come out with a public statement on events around the match away at Kerala Blasters on Sunday, November 13.
The FC Goa statement
FC Goa would like to communicate that the Club has written to the Kerala Blasters management expressing concerns in regard to security that was provided to the Club and our traveling supporters during our latest game in Kochi on Sunday.
The club has highlighted particularly the issues faced in the ‘Away Stand’ which had a large presence of home fans, which led to unsavory incidents which the club believes could have been easily avoided.
The safety of our supporters remains one of our paramount concerns.
Furthermore, the Club has reported an incident to the League and the Home Team regarding the safety of the club staff where a member of the technical team was hit by a stone while helping the substitute players warm up.
FC Goa has requested the Kerala Blasters’ management to conduct an inquiry into the matter.
