Amr Warda slapped with three-match suspension

Amr Warda slapped with three-match suspension


The Greek FA has suspended for three matches following his red card during his side’s game against Panathinaikos, which was abandoned due to a mass brawl.

The brawl erupted after Warda was sent-off in the 51st minute, when Panathinaikos were leading 1-0 through Marcus Berg, and moments later PAOK manager Vladimir Ivić was hit in the head by a can of beer. He was taken to hospital and needed two stitches to close his wound.

Referee Giorgos Kominos abandoned the match, which made the Greek FA award PAOK a 3-0 win over the hosts, as well as suspending Amr Warda and four other players for violent conduct.

The three-match suspension means that PAOK will be without Amr Warda for their double encounter with Panionios and their away fixture against AEK Athens. However, Warda will be available for his side’s last game of the season against Panathinaikos on May 31.

It’s worth mentioning that the Super League play-offs will determine the second Greek side in next season UEFA Champions League qualifiers after league champions Olympiacos, and it joins four teams, PAOK, AEK Athens, Panionios, and Panathinaikos.
