Greek derby postponed as angry PAOK owner storms pitch with gun 11.03.2018

Athens, Greece — A disputed goal at the end of the match between leader AEK and title rival PAOK.

Angry PAOK owner, Ivan Savvidis, with his security guards entered the field, when the referee cancelled a PAOK goal in the 89th minute of the game as offside. Savvidis made gestures asking for his players to leave the pitch. Then he moved towards the referee but his boduguards stopped him.

Ivan Savvidis, came on the field twice. On the second occasion, without the overcoat he was wearing before, Savvidis appeared with a pistol visible on his belt.

AEK officials claimed Savvidis threatened the referee and he also threatened AEK’s operations manager, Vassilis Dimitriadis.

The referee later reinstated the goal and the PAOK – AEK match ended 1-0. However, since the game was interrupted by Savvidis invasion, the result is not official and the score of the game will be decided in the court of the Hellenic Football Federation.

This is the disputed PAOK goal.
