Following a meeting with Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras at Maximos Mansion, deputy Sports Minister Giorgos Vassiliadis announced the government’s decision to stop the Greek football league until further notice. The Greek Premier stressed that this Gordian knot must be cut and that he is determined to ignore the political cost.

The photos of PAOK president entering the football field of Touba with a gun have already traveled around the world, and FIFA has strongly condemned the incidents that took place on Sunday evening during the match PAOK-AEK. FIFA has also called the institutional bodies to take drastic measures, so as to ensure the smooth running of the matches, otherwise it will consider penalties, including the country’s expulsion from the Federation.
