KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) - Malaysian football club Perak FA have suspended all of their coaches and officials for two weeks on Monday over suspected match-fixing following a series of heavy defeats.

National news agency Bernama said state football authorities in Perak planned to lodge reports with police and anti-graft authorities after a run of three losses including a 1-6 drubbing by Sarawak on Saturday.

Deputy president Khairul Azwan Harun told reporters the Perak Football Association had also launched its own internal inquiry to investigate what happened.

The side's poor performance saw it crash out of the Malaysia Cup, despite earlier leading its group.
