AEK fan club torched 2 days after cup final riots

Greek police say suspected soccer hooligans have set fire to the

office of an AEK fan club in Athens, two days after the team’s

Greek Cup final victory over Atromitos ended in riots.

A police statement says nobody was injured in Monday’s attack,

which extensively damaged the club’s office and two cars parked

outside. No arrests were reported.

AEK won its first Greek Cup since 2002 on Saturday, but the

match ended in chaos when AEK fans invaded the field, fought with

Atromitos players and abused their fans.

A disgusted Atromitos coach Giorgos Donis claimed that some

aimed flare guns at supporters in the VIP stands.

The government has renewed older threats to cut state funding

for the sport unless the Greek soccer federation toughens

disciplinary rules.
