New voetbalrellen in Greece

ATHENS – A demonstration of football fans against the government policy in Greece, out of hand. The riots were in Piraeus, when the finance minister, Euclid Tsakalotos, a speech and wanted to keep. Young people started with stone throwing and burn trash cans in fire. With tear gas and drove the police the crowd apart.

The demonstration was organised by various fan groups of Olympiakos Piraeus. The fanatical following of the holder is to disagree with the voetbalbeleid of the Greek government.

The riots occurred barely two days after the Greek government a suspension of more than two weeks of the national football league discontinued. The races on the highest level were suspended after new outrages in the Greek stadiums. So ran chairman Ivan Savvides of PAOK after a disallowed goal against AEK with a gun in his pocket the field to protest. That was for the Greek government the immediate reason to intervene.

The sixteen clubs in the Superliga have agreed with tougher punishments after riots.
