Greek game abandoned as PAOK chief enters pitch with gun

Gun owner

Greek-Russian businessman Ivan Savvidis is one of the wealthiest men in Russia and closely linked to president Vladimir Putin.

Savvidis interrupted the match to protest a decision after Fernando Varela's late victor for the hosts was disallowed for offside in the 90th minute. However, the committee maintained with its decision to award last month´s match - which was postponed after the incident - to Olympiakos 3-0 and to keep the 30,000 euros fine for PAOK.

Skai TV reported on Monday morning that, after a prosecutor launched an investigation on Sunday night over Savvidis entering the pitch at Toumba with a gun in a hip holster, a warrant for his arrest was issued and police is searching for him.

Savvidis, who appeared to usher his players off the pitch, confronted referee Giorgios Kominis and was then led away by his security.

Although the officials re-emerged later, PAOK claimed on Twitter the game "was finally halted with the score 1-0" in favour of the home side, despite the late goal initially seeming to be disallowed.

Reports in Greece claim Kominis changed his decision to allow the goal for PAOK, and the Greek Super League website now has the result listed as a 1-0 win for the home side.

Chaos then ensued, as PAOK's players surrounded referee Georgios Kominis and club chief Ivan Savidis marched onto the field and ordered his team off in protest.

Before Sunday's debacle, PAOK had been third in the table, just five points behind AEK at the summit.

"After the invasion, the referee has gone inside and after two hours wanted to resume".
