Greek soccer club owner threatens referee while carrying pistol after goal disallowed


PAOK said in a statement: "After what happened today, PAOK chairman Ivan Savvidis is preparing all necessary procedures to protect the team and all his collaborators from the threats and attacks they have been subjected to".

Spare a thought, though, for Greek football club PAOK chairman Ivan Savvidis, who is seemingly unconcerned by any of that.

Despite the pitch invasion beginning before the 90 minutes had been wholly completed, the match did not restart but the result will stand. The referee signalled a goal but then seemed to disallow it for offside. The match was subsequently abandoned as Savvidis was escorted from the field.

In the spring of 2015, Greek Parliament ratified a bill aimed to tackle violence at stadiums, but incidents during this year's season indicate that more work needs to be done.

The incident led Greece's sports minister Giorgos Vasileiadis to suspend the Superleague indefinitely, reaching the decision on Monday after a meeting with the country's Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.

The decision sparked chaos on the pitch at Toumba Stadium; PAOK players remonstrated with Kominis over his decision to deny a goal, which would have seen their side move to just two points behind league leaders AEK.

A group of fans ran onto the pitch, as well as the club's owner, who appeared to have a gun in his pocket.

While Ireland have not been flawless in any of their matches so far, Murray believes they are fixing problems as they go along. "Every good team goes through this period", Jones said today, "it's actually an essential part of developing a great team".

European soccer's governing body also condemned the incident.

Both Fifa and Uefa condemned the actions of Savvidis, but announced that any disciplinary measures "fall under the jurisdiction of the Greek FA".

Mr. Vassiliadis added that the government's efforts will continue, and that a new set of stricter rules would need to be in place before the suspension of the Super League is lifted. "We have won a lot, but much more remains to be done", the minister said. "On no account will we allow this entire effort to be jeopardized or the phenomena of the past to be resurrected; we will not permit any turning back", Vasiliadis stressed.
