FORMER Ba and Fiji soccer rep Taito Bula has urged the parent body to hand the Lloyd Farebrother trophy to Suva claiming the goal scored by Waisake Navunigasau against the Men in Black was legal.
Bula, who witnessed the abandoned Courts Inter District Championship final between Suva and Ba, said the walkout by the home team was unwarranted.
He said if Ba wanted to protest then they should have done it when two of their goals were disallowed.
Bula, who hails from Nailaga, said the unruly behaviour of the fans was uncalled for.
"It's a shame what happened on Sunday," Bula said.
"You don't expect that from a champion team like Ba. The television replays and the pictures in the print media clearly show that ball had crossed Ba's line.
"There should not be a rematch. I played for Ba for many years and I'm a staunch Ba fan. But you have to give credit where it is due. In this case Suva should be awarded the title.
"My message to the Ba players and fans is that they should show true sportsmanship. There is no place for hooliganism in soccer. The goal was awarded by the referee and that's it. His decision is final."
Bula also represented Lautoka.
