ATHENS- Ivan Savvidis, one of Greece’s richest men, walked onto the pitch during an interruption in Sunday night’s game in Thessaloniki, when referee Georgios Kominis disallowed a goal from PAOK’s Fernando Varela in the 89th minute.
The Greek ministry of Sport said they will take ‘bold decisions’ on Monday after Savvidis owner of PAOK went onto the pitch to argue about a disallowed goal in Thessaloniki, when referee Georgios Kominis disallowed a goal from PAOK’s Fernando Varela in the 89th minute.
The match until that moment was goalless.
The owner went on the pitch occupied by bodyguards, wore upholster on his waist, he appeared to have had a revolver around his waist but he did not remove it during the ensuing commotion.
State media reported that the referee two hours later allowed the goal.
Greek deputy sport minster Georgios Vassiliadias in a written statement said, “Such extreme phenomena call for bold decisions,”
“We will not allow anybody to deter us from this path, even if tough decisions are required in consultation with UEFA,” Vassiliadis said.
