“And worse off, when someone’s life is being threatened.

“The league doesn’t support violence”.

Faizal said he was shocked by the threat and is contemplating on whether to file a Police report.

Footballers’ and fans were quick to condemn the post, and many suggested the matter be reported to Police and called on the FSLGV to suspended James for life for bringing disrepute to the association.

“The seriousness of the matter needs immediate action from FSLGV”, said Subarmani Reddy, the former defensive titan of Fijian football.

“The league suspends players for unrelated issues, it’s about time they standup and right the wrong”.

Facebook friends of Junior had called for the post to be taken down but as of last night it was still up.
