Greek League Suspended After PAOK President Brings Gun Onto Pitch to Confront Ref

Greek League Suspended After PAOK President Brings Gun Onto Pitch to Confront Ref

The Greek Super League has been suspended indefinitely after the president of PAOK brought a holstered gun onto the pitch to remonstrate with a referee.

The bizarre incident took place last night after PAOK’s tense 0-0 draw with AEK Athens, which saw PAOK denied a late winner when the officials cancelled out a seemingly good goal.

The prompted president Ivan Savvidis tried to confront the referee with a gun in a hip holster, as the AEK’s players quickly left the pitch concerned for their safety, refusing to return.

There was a lot riding on the result of Sunday’s clash between the two sides, with PAOK currently sitting third in the Greek top flight and aiming to move within two points of leaders AEK with a win.

The Greek FA have since announced the Super League has been suspended indefinitely following an investigation, but it’s probably safe to say that Mr. Savvidis is probably looking at a hefty fine, and a pretty long ban.

What do you think of the incident?
