The 20-year-old Katidis gave a Nazi salute after scoring the go-ahead goal Saturday in AEK’s 2-1 victory over Veria in the Greek league.
Although Katidis claims he did not know the meaning of the gesture, Greece’s soccer federation said that they found his gesture as “a deep insult to all victims of Nazi brutality.”
AEK fans demanded that Katidis be removed from the team. However, the AEK and the Greek league are looking into separate penalties for the player.
