KUALA LUMPUR: The Professional Footballers Association of Malaysia (PFAM) have urged both the Melaka United Soccer Association (MUSA) and the Sarawak FA (SFA) to investigate allegations of match fixing within their teams.

PFAM president Rezal Zambery Yahya said an in-depth investigation needs to be conducted before any further action is taken.

"We hope they will conduct an investigation and not take any unwarranted, drastic action before it is complete," said Rezal, when contacted today.

"If there is evidence of match-fixing, we urge them to turn in the player to the authorities so they can be punished according the law."

Rezal, however, added that both MUSA and FAS need to clear the names of their players should there be no evidence of match-fixing.

"We are hoping that both MUSA and FAS will make a statement should the investigation be completed and there is no proof of match fixing.

"This is to clear the players of any wrongdoing and also to avoid a misunderstanding."

Melaka conceded three goals within 36 minutes in the 4-1 defeat to Selangor in a recent Super League match while Felcra netted late goals in the 3-2 win over Sarawak in Saturday’s Premier League game.
