I spent four months in Tajikistan last year and I heard about at least three huge fights involving soccer teams and their fans. I know that after they appointed president’s son as head of the soccer federation, the situation has improved (mostly because the offenders are now brutally punished). So, why do they have this violence again? Any explanation?
I think it might be true that such incidents might actually benefit Tajik football.
