Johannesburg - The South African Football Coaches Association (SAFCA), a body that looks after the interest and well-being of both professional and amateur coaches has joined in the condemnation of unruly fan behaviour, which has gripped local soccer of late.

"SAFCA is disturbed by the growing trend of attacks on coaches by supporters; and as a responsible organisation with the interest of football at heart, we condemn the attack on coaches in general and in particular the consistent attacks on Mamelodi Sundowns FC Coach Mr Johan Neeskens by the club's supporters," said interim President of SAFCA, Gregory Mashilo.

He also appealed to football supporters to utilise properly constituted forums, which are available in all clubs.
