PAOK v Olympiakos: Coach hospitalised by toilet roll, derby off

Published

THE derby between Greek league leaders PAOK and defending champions Olympiakos at PAOK’s Toumba Stadium never got underway Sunday, after Olympiakos coach Oscar Garcia was sent to hospital after being hit in the face by a cash register paper roll.

While they did not dispute the hit, PAOK officials said Olympiakos exaggerated the impact in an attempt to have PAOK, who are six points ahead of Olympiakos, face punishment and possible point deduction.

“This is a shadow play, a strategy that Olympiakos started implementing even ahead of the game, fantasising about (incidents) in its friendly media,” said PAOK communications chief Kyriakos Kyriakos. “Just this morning, they warned us that they would leave the pitch at the slightest incident.” The roll appeared to be thrown from the VIP stands as the teams came out before the game started.

Garcia was rushed to a hospital, but the teams stayed in the stadium for nearly three hours before they were told the game was off.
