Greek Super League suspended after PAOK President enters field with gun”

We know this not because he railed to the media or demanded an explanation from league officials, as most unhappy team owners would, but rather because he chose to twice storm the field while armed with a holstered handgun and surrounded by bodyguards.

Greece's deputy culture and sports minister Georgios Vassiliadis said the situation called for "bold decisions".

A Greek Superleague match between PAOK and AEK Athens was postponed on Sunday after PAOK owner Ivan Savvidis entered the pitch carrying a gun, Skysports reports. Adding to the widespread confusion, there were claims that the referee, Giorgos Kominis, had allowed the goal. As a result Sunday's decisive Super League contest against leaders AEK Athens will take place in front of spectators.

European soccer's governing body also condemned "the recent incidents in Greek football".

Ivan Savvidis, a Russian oligarch and former member of parliament with Vladimir Putin's United Russia party, marched onto the pitch after his side, PAOK, seemed to have a last-minute Fernando Varela goal disallowed for offside.

The league suspension is the latest stopgap measure adopted by the Tsipras government to maintain order in a championship spiralling out of control.

PAOK Salonika thought they had secured victory in Greece's crucial title clash against AEK Athens.

Two weeks ago, PAOK's home game with Olympiacos was abandoned before kick-off when visiting coach Oscar Garcia was struck by a roll of paper thrown from the stands. PAOK was initially deducted three points for the abandonment, but had the sanction overturned on appeal. He has holdings in assets ranging from Thessaloniki port to tobacco and media companies.

Last year, Savvidis was part of a Franco-German consortium that won a bid for the privatisation of the Thessaloniki port authority.
