After invading the pitch with a gun on Sunday during the match of his side Greek club PAOK Salonika, the president of the club has apologised.
Upon entering the field after PAOK had a late goal ruled out for offside against AEK Athens, Ivan Savvidis had a gun in a holster. This incident led to the Greek Super League being indefinitely suspended.
Savvidis said: “I am very sorry. I clearly had no right to enter the field of play in this fashion.” According to local police they were seeking Savvidis to arrest him on Monday.
Fifa has threatened to suspend Greece from international competition and “expects” the national governing body to take “appropriate measures and rapidly”.
Giorgos Vasiliadis, the deputy sports minister announced that the league had been suspended on Monday after a meeting with Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.
However Giorgos Stratos, the league president has opposed the decision. He believes: “The suspension cancels out anything positive that has been done. The suspension endangers the entire sport of football beyond the financial consequences.”
