Darmanin Demajo in his introduction speech said that he is sorry for what has happened and said that he agreed with the Hon. Minister that what has happened is deplorable. He continued to say that it is a shame that no local Club has issued a press release to condemn such acts.

He added “I do not want to have another season whereby we have match days in which we hear vulgar chants as these put off people and families fro our stadia”

Darmanin Demajo concluded his thoughts about this letter by saying that if need be he is ready to propose that the respective supporters will be separated from each other by moving one set of supporters from the enclosure and moving the supporters on a rotation basis to the Millennium stand in order to avoid fans seeing each other according to him.
