Malaysian FA angry over football match-fixing charge

KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) - The Football Association of Malaysia has demanded that FIFA's security chief explain his recent allegation that Malaysian soccer officials had been linked to match-fixing. The charge by FIFA's head of security Chris Eaton has prompted a testy response from Malaysia's football body, which said Eaton's comments were 'uncalled-for' and has demanded evidence in a letter that it said was sent to the security chief on Thursday. 'We view this matter seriously and wish to impress upon you that such a media release is uncalled-for as we were not notified,' FAM Secretary-General Azzuddin Ahmad said in the letter. 'This has, in a way, tarnished our association's image. The FAM would appreciate if you could furnish us with details of the investigation that is taking place.' AFP obtained a copy of the letter on Monday.
