Declaration by Floriana FC players
In view of yesterday’s 15th January 2017 Premier Division match between Floriana FC vs Hibernians FC we, as Floriana FC players, would like to point out the facts regardlng the incident involving our colleague player Amadou Samb. By means of this declaration we, all Floriana FC players, would like to show total solidarity with Amadou Samb who is a victim of continuous personal attacks during this season, practically from the beginning of the season.
This occurred even during yesterday’s match in which Amadou Samb was the victim of several insults from the opponent’s bench; such insults were not noticed and not reported by the match officials. This is unacceptable not only in sports but also in a democratic society. In respect of human dignity we, as Floriana FC, show all solidarity with our colleague and are ready to express this solidarity in all means possible if this attitude persists against Amadou Samb.
