Giorgos Katidis banned for five matches for Nazi salute

Giorgos Katidis is handed a five-match ban and a fine by the Greek Football Federation.

AEK Athens midfielder Giorgos Katidis has been handed a five-match ban by the Greek Football Federation (EPO) for his goal celebration in which he made a Nazi salute.

He has also been banned from entering any sports venues and fined £850 for his actions, on top of his club's suspension from games for the remainder of the Super League season.

An EPO statement said: "AEK Athens footballer Giorgos Katidis is disqualified for five matches, banned from entering sports stadia for three months and is ordered to pay a fine of £850 due to the incidents in the Super League match AEK-Veria."

The player initially denied any wrongdoing following the incident.
